View Full Version : Baby Cheesus
Can anyone tell me which cheese snacks they recommend.
We're boring here. Chloe has always just gotten plain old cheddar or tasty cheese sliced off the block. Though recently she's gotten the pre-shredded stuff too and loves it.
Good old fashioned Coon KB - we've never fed our kids anything other than unprocessed (not the gooey lemon coloured stuff they make into sticks) cheddar or tasty cheese. We buy it by the kilo!
My niece who is now two has always eaten whatever her mum had in the fridge, smoked, brie etc... She actually does not like the taste of normal processed chedder/tasty. I am sure you could give your son anything that you picked up or that you had in the fridge (that is if your DH likes cheese and you have some in the fridge!) I would just stay away from the low fat ones.
If it looks like a block and doesn't look like plastic it's good enough for us.
We just slice straight off the block too. O would eat it all day if we let him!
Well all cheese is processed to an extent. But blocks of traditional cheeses (tasty, cheddar, mozzarella) are I think less processed than the pre-shaped sticks and wedges, and I think less than the snack packs of cheese dips with crackers (lunchables etc).
DD also gets cream cheese, on toast, which is possibly more processed than hard cheeses but I'm not sure .
Basic cheese ingredients are milk, salt, and rennet (starter culture). Anything else is preservatives, colours, softening, and "processing" I guess.
If it's very yellow it may have colour added. Most low-processed cheese will be white to pale yellow. Count the ingredients if you can. The fewer the better.
KB you are too funny...................saw your title for this thread and thought you were going to break out into "christmas" song...............Away in a manger or something about baby Jesus!! hehehe :D
My kids lurve cheese too and I am very particular about not giving them that processed crap.
I will not buy any cheese that is not refrigerated (it's gotta be processed to the hilt if it's sitting there on the shelves without refrigeration)!
I use block's of cheese (coon or bega), but have just come across Coon Minimoos (in the refrigerated section) - they are basically cheesesticks for kids made with the exact same ingredients as a block of coon.
Good luck on your search! :)
KB you are a beautiful mum for facing cheese for your DS. I only hope that I will be able to do the same thing with fish when Kyle gets a bit older...Yucko! :eek:
Agree with PeaceAngel - MiniMoo's are good for my son! They are simply mini Coon cheese sticks.
Not sure if they have this brand in Japan?? Try looking for one that's from the Tasty/cheddar range.
Another suggestion is Kraft Singles slices - prewrapped cheese slices - good for sandwiches!
hahahahahahahha *I am rolling on my beanbag* hahahhhahahahahahahahahaha
That is so funny.
Sorry, that hasn't helped at all has it.
I have a friend living in Japan who loves cheese. I will send her an email and ask her if she knows any specific brands there that are unprocessed.
Here you go KB. Meat and cheese delivered to your door. The Meat Guy. (http://www.themeatguy.jp/)
Of the cheeses listed, I'd try gouda, emmenthal, novegia, white cheddar (red cheddar probably ok but it's english and I've never had a good english cheddar). Gruyere is nice for melting.
The blue veined cheeses have spores added to make mold, they tend to be a bit sharp in taste. I don't like them but DD and DH do.
Camembert is a soft cheese, nice on crackers but I wouldn't bother with it for O. If you do get it, the white "rind" on the outside is edible.
Another option is to get cottage cheese, which I can't describe. Its sort of soft lumps of cheese that will come in a tub. I mix it into things like mashed potatoes for DD, or she has it on it's own.
What goes around comes around KB. I already have you shortlisted for all my future questions on wasabi and sake.
It says delivery to "all Japan". Even if you don't order from him, I figured his item list was a good overview of what you could be looking at.
And if you ever need a bear in a hurry Martha, you know who to ask.
We grate the big blocks of tasty cheese here. Dh is a mega cheese head, eats it by the handful.
I was just thinking last night ds might want to eat peas one day........ ewwwwwwwww..... I always taste his food before I give it to him, but I just couldn't go there with peas.. :(
Cathy, Chloe has her own stinky bear which rarely leaves her sight. It's Canadian though so if it did go missing I'd be in as much of a panic as KB was! A tip if you're cooking peas for Max - throw in a few kernels of corn with it, when the corn is cooked and cooled the peas will be too. And your taste buds are saved from torture.
I haven't read the whole thread, and don't really have anything to add (mine just eats the same block-cheese that we eat) but I just wanted to say you gave me an honest-to-god belly laugh with the title of this thread..... Baby Cheesus :D :D I haven't laughed that hard in weeks THANK YOU for getting my endorphins rolling!
Martha - thank you so much for that advice. Once again bubhub saves the day.
No oven? What the? Please explain.
I suppose raw fish doesn't really require an oven...
We had our playgroup Christmas break-up yesterday. It is held at a local church so of course the story of the first Christmas was read out. So when I read your title baby chessus I thought you were talking toddler for Baby Jesus!:o
Anyhow on to cheese now. Just a little thing to add. It is best to stick to mild cheeses if possible. These our cheeses that haven't been left to "culture" as long as others. It should be marked as mild on the packets (hopefully). Mature cheeses can cause things such as migraines so it is probably best avoided for a little while.
Sorry to confuse the issue I thought I better mention it.
What on earth did cheesus do to you for you to have this repulsion.......... :p
Maybe you were a cow in a previous life KB?
or a block of cheese...................in a past life that is! :p
Hey KB, the followng nessage is from my friend in Japan... No help to you at all huh. Keep it up with the sprinkling...
"hey ali! just a quick email re the cheese. i dont eat japanese cheese, i think its all processed, at any rate it tastes like rubber. i only eat the expensive european cheeses (of course) so i dont think i can help your friend. sorry sweetie."
