    Question Cheese snacks...

    I know there are all sorts of ways to give your kids a cheese snack. There's the cheaper prepacked and highly processed (plastic looking and tasting) slices. There's the higher quality prepacked slices. There's the special high processed kids cheese strips and ofcourse you can just cut a few pieces from a block.

    I know the prepacked stuff is quicker and easier, but is it healthier?
    What kind of cheese snacks do you give your child(ren)?

    Yellow cheese in general is not that great, white cheese is usually better, I did have a quick look at cheeses when I was looking for DS and remember the kids one had more salt than the normal one!

    I think the plain baby bell ( in the little red wax circles) were the best I could find ( and convenient)

    DS does not really like them but loves feta , goats cheese or cottage cheese spread on rice cakes or ricotta stirred through pasta

    My kids usually have the babybell cheese or a piece of fetta/tasty cheese, we don't buy processed sliced cheese, usually we have sliced cheddar, the proper stuff sliced at the deli or I buy tasty block cheese and we always have heaps of fetta.

    Baby bell....... Never thought of them. Should get some for DS. Thanks for the tip
    Though I'm now giving him just pieces cut off a block of Colby. Will have to check which one of them is the better one to give.
