Cheese is part of a healthy diet
While it's important to make sure that we don't consume too much fat, it's equally important to get all the nutrients we need every day. Cheese can be a higher source of fat than other milk products. However, its high overall nutrient content makes it a valuable food that can be enjoyed in moderation.
There's a wide variety of cheeses on the market, with various levels of fat content. Read the labels to find the ones that better suit your needs and taste.
