Cheese is a great superfood kids because kids love to eat it. Little do they know it's also chock full of calcium, protein and vitamin B12. Not only that, but cheese contains phosphorus, a bone-building mineral. And if all of this wasn't enough, studies have shown that eating cheese after a meal can help prevent dental cavities. You probably won't have a very hard time getting your kids to eatcheese. Melt it in grilled cheese sandwiches and serve it with some healthy soup for a double-dose of nutrition. It's also a good topper in salads and on vegetables that your kids may otherwise not want to try.
