Recipies & Cheese Tips

Cheese Facts

  • Cheese is packed with the protein that we all need to build and maintain our bodies. From hair to muscle, almost 20% of your body is made from protein.
  • A small matchbox-sized piece of Cheddar contains as much calcium as a third of a pint of milk.
  • Cheese is a great source of vitamin A, which you need for healthy skin and eyes and to keep your defence system working properly, helping to fight illnesses caused by nasty bugs and viruses.
  • Cheese is an excellent source of energy - a bite of cheese instead of a sugary drink keeps you and your teeth on the go all day!
  • Each day our friends in France, Italy, Greece and Germany eat nearly twice as much cheese, per person, as we do.
  • Cheese is one of the most versatile foods around and can be used as a starter, a main course or as a dessert - you can't do that with many other foods!

How to store and serve Cheese

  • Cheese should be stored in the fridge as this provides a controlled cool environment.
