I love cheese! There are so many different mouth-watering varieties and it’s difficult to think of a meal where a bit of added cheese wouldn’t make it even tastier!
The good news is that healthy eating doesn’t mean having to give up your favourite cheeses. Cheese contains valuable protein and calcium, and by simply swapping to reduced-fat alternatives, you can still enjoy it as part of your Lifestyle Plan.
Take a look at the calories in your favourites and make sure you choose wisely.
