Cheese is the No. 2 source of bone-building calcium in the American diet, as well as an excellent source of high-quality protein. In fact, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend three daily servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy products every day for people ages 9 and older.



Adding cheese to your child’s diet is easy. Try these kid-friendly snack ideas:



* Dice cheddar cheese, apple slices and crackers, then throw into a zip-top bag for easy snacking on the go.



* Roll a stick of string cheese into a whole-wheat tortilla and dip in salsa.



* Spread Dijon mustard inside a lettuce leaf. Layer with a slice of turkey and Swiss cheese, then roll.



* Top a tostada with fat-free refried beans. Sprinkle on shredded pepper Jack cheese, and melt in microwave.



* Top whole-wheat crackers with Mozzarella cheese and sliced cherry tomatoes.
