Adding some fun to the lunchbox of kids could be as easy as adding some cream flavor cheese and cherry to the snacking. The delicious cream cheese could be paired nicely with a variety of ingredients that make a healthy snack. Use it as dips or spread on celery sticks – it will definitely increase interest of your kid to his/her lunchbox. Parents have the option of a variety of cream flavor cheese alternatives that kids will love to lick off. Here are the options to it.
Low fat cream cheese
Low fat cream flavor cheese is deemed as a healthier option. Soften it up by allowing warming to room temperature or alternatively use the whipped derivative. Creamy white cheese on celery is easy preparation and takes just an hour to properly mingle.
If you are eager to use pure cheese upon the celery, you can just spread the cream and top it with nuts, resins, olives, small pieces of dried and fresh fruits, or even mix it up with shredded cheese topped with pickles, olives and pimento. It will be a good thing if you can further scrape an onion to free the juice and mix it with the cheese spread. This could be an excellent dip for other vegetable sticks as well.
Creamy white cheese happens to be a good carrier of fruit and sweet ingredients. Mix fruit pulp or fruit bits into the spread and spice the cream up with cinnamon. Adding a bit of honey will further intensify the taste. You can also make quick fruit dips by mixing the cream flavor cheese with fruit preserves or combine any mashed up canned fruit along with yoghurt and cream cheese for a delicious dip. Garnish the celery with nuts and resins and you have the healthiest and tasty serving in the lunchbox.
Spicy cheese spread
Mix the creamy white cheese with salsa to derive a spicy topping on the celery. This could as well be garnished with diced bell pepper and paprika. Most of the kids would go with mild salsa, but you can always experiment into what tickles his/her taste buds! This kind of cream flavored cheese spread could be rolled up into a tortilla for an amazing snack. If your kid tends to waste too much while eating, you can also slice up the spread into small round bites.
Savory cheese spread
A quick and savory spread could be derived by dressing the cheese with veggie mixes. While adventurous kids will prefer herb mixes, it could be sweetened up by adding freshly minced vegetable and shredded carrots. When preparing celery, a garlic and herb mix will be the perfect alternative. One can even add Italian seasoning and salt for the flavors to deepen.
As it is, there is no hard and fast rule to a kid’s lunchbox recipe. They like anything interesting and have creamy white cheese in it! So feel free to write you own cookbook!
