Food Tuesday: Cabot’s Lactose-Free Cheese for Kids

Cabot's Lacose-Free Cheese

Lately, it seems like more kids are lactose intolerant.  They can’t handle milk or other dairy-laced products.  Even a small amount of butter could make a child sick.  This leave parents having to rework recipes, which is tricky when cheese is the main ingredient in a meal, like tacos.  Who doesn’t love a cheesy taco for dinner?

Once you start omitting cheese, milk and other dairy products, you realize lactose is in everything.  One solution for parents is from Cabot, the cheese maker in Vermont.

Several of Cabot’s cheese selections are “Naturally Lactose Fee,” which means kids can still get the calcium they need and indulge in nachos, cheese and crackers, chili with shredded cheese, grilled cheese, and other appetizers and meals without having to worry about upset an tummy.  Try Cabot’s “Smooth Sharp Cheddar Cheese” and “50% Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese.”  The cheeses are also gluten-free, an added perk for those on a gluten-free diet.

Cabot’s website has lactose-free recipes, as well information about the different cheeses available from the company.  The site also has useful information and links on lactose intolerance.   Look for these logos on the Cabot cheese packages:

    Thanks for sharing the “good news” about our Cheddar with your fans. As a mom of two boys (who luckily are not lactose intolerant), I can say that these are kid favorites, for sure!

    On behalf of the farm families who own Cabot, we sincerely appreciate the mention.
