Swiss cheese helps your children grow

The calcium present in Swiss cheese promotes bone growth in children. The protein and vitamins also contained in these cheeses assist in the growth and maintenance of the body’s organs (muscles, bones, …). Calcium and casein also help prevent cavities !

Babies can start eating cheese at eight months’ old, and children are allowed normal portions around the age of 18 months. Here’s a trick: cut the cheese in strips, which are easier for little hands to grab.

As cheese encourages learning about new tastes and textures, its consumption integrates easily into a child’s healthy diet.
