A few years ago, after bathing and dressing the little one in his PJs, I thought he was playing while I finished bathing his big brother. Upon returning to the kitchen to finish making dinner, I busted him hooking into the big block of cheese I had left unguarded on the bench!
Clearly little boys LOVE cheese.
My boys especially like cheese on their baked beans. I found a great recipe a few years ago, we have modified it slightly over time and now call it ‘cheesy beans’. Basically, the beans are heated up with a few other ingredients, then cheese is melted over the top! They request it regularly and as it’s quick, easy and tastes great I am more than happy to oblige.
They also love cheese on tacos, on lasagne, on their bolognaise, on their pizza, in a sandwich, in scrambled eggs, straight up, in their lunchbox or like my little one… stolen right off the bench!
Cheese is a great source of calcium for strong teeth and healthy bones
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know as much as the next parent how fussy children can be. My oldest son is very particular about his food and how I serve it. Therefore, I am more than happy to share my recipes if it makes other parents lives a little easier.
