I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Arla Dofino. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I’ve never met a kid that didn’t like cheese so it’s usually easy to incorporate cheese into healthy snacks and meals for kids.
My kids love cheese paired with apples, grapes or tomatoes, grilled cheese sandwiches (esp Havarti with dill), on fruit salad skewers, alongside rice crackers or a bowl of almonds or pecans, in a lettuce and hummus wrap and of course on top of creamy tomato soup or macaroni and cheese.
So many different ways to serve cheese to your little ones! Check out The Naptime Chef for recipes and ideas.
You’ll find tons of yummy recipes on the Arla website like Chicken Panini with Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti Slices and Basil Pesto and Chicken and Spicy Chorizo Quesadilla with Melta Arla® Dofino® Gouda Slices.
I was so inspired by their recipes, that I jumped into the kitchen and made this for lunch:
Sauteed green peppers, onions and mushrooms with fire roasted pepper jack sausages on top of 4 cheese tortellini’s in a cheese sauce I made with butter, milk, cream, fresh grated parm, spices and a block of Arla Dofino Fontina Cheese.
Yes, it was delicious!!
My daughter (7) helped me prepare this meal by slicing mushrooms and peppers, collecting the ingredients for me and doing the dishes afterward. That’s my little helper girl!
It was quick and easy to prepare so it would be great as an after school meal or a fun family dinner.
