Cheese, its Whats for Dinner!

Blurring the line on appetizer, dinner, or even busy lunch, cheese boards and snack platters are one of our favorite ways to get lots of different meals done. We talk a little bit about how we make cheese for dinner a little more nutritious and why we use these gorgeous boards to get our kids to try new foods.

Our Tips for Building Cheese Boards

  • Choose 1-3 types of cheese — something hard, something semi-soft, and soft

  • Meat is optional!

  • Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables in different colors

  • Include a bowl for pits and stems and get it started.

  • Precut as much of these cheese as you can — this makes it more approachable

  • Put cheeses down first

  • Add bowls for dips and small items

  • Add crackers, fruit, and vegetables
