“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf ofMom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
One of the promises that I made to myself this year is that I would be feeding my family better. I’d have to say that about 80% of the time I do a good job. There are so many “good for you” options that kids enjoy as well as adults. One of my favorite snacks is cheese and crackers. (Actually cheese and anything!) I always keep some cheese in the fridge, but not just any cheese. Heavily processed cheeses just don’t sit well with me, and they even make me not feel sick. I buy high quality cheeses and can completely avoid this problem. One of my favorites is Arla Dofino’s Havarti. They come in many varieties Creamy, Dill, Jalapeno, Hickory Smoked, Light and also you can buy Havarti by the slice. (Think awesome sandwiches and grilled cheese for the wee ones!)
A Better Back-To-School Snack Choice:
My boys’ have been actively helping prep their snacks and lunches. They not only enjoy knowing exactly what they are getting, but they also like to make a fancy plate. I blame this on too much food TV! It could also be that they have seen me arrange way too many party platters. Either way we all have a lot of fun in the kitchen and know how to enjoy a good snack. Plus my youngest son is a vegetarian and cheese delivers calcium, protein and B-12 all important nutrients in anyones diet, but especially his. I like to say that, “It’s always a party when you serve Havarti!”
As a mom one thing that I discovered is that when we cook together as a family my children are more likely to try something new. So, if you think your child will only eat cheese that is orange try a new approach. Arla Dofino Creamy can be sliced with a butter knife. Children do get such joy from helping. It doesn’t have to be complicated. My simple cheese and crackers morphed into cheese, crackers and apples. Then someone wanted to try carrots with the cheese and so it continues. Give it a try and let me know how it went!
