With kids comes snacking, they just have to have their snacks! Afterschool, between meals, before bed or on the go - our kids are definitely snackers. This gives mom the job of coming up with creative and healthy snacks for them to enjoy.

If there is one easy snack my family likes its cheese. Whether it be a cheese dip with veggies, cream cheese on a cracker or cut up into cheese cubes from a block, we love having cheese as a healthy snack just about any time. I don't know about you but I'm a big spreadable cheese fan. I especially like it on melba toast or spreading it on a nice warm toasted bagel, heaven.

Parmalat Canada is excited to introduce its new La Creme Cow - line of spreadable snack cheese both adults and kids will love. La Creme Cow is available in three delicious flavours including Original, light and parmesan & Peppercorn. Each wedge of cheese has a delicious mild taste with a very smooth and creamy texture. La Creme Cow spreadable cheese is an excellent every-day snack option because its so easy - each piece is individually wrapped and can easily be stored and spread on just about anything you enjoy!


La Creme Cow spreadable cheese can be found in the dairy section of your local Loblaws or Metro grocery stores nationwide and is available in the following formats:

- Original (12pk $5.49)
- Light (6pk $2.99)
- Parmesan & Peppercorn (6pk $2.99)


We were sent a lovely La Creme Cow gift pack which contained all kinds of La Creme Cow goodies including six packages of yummy La Creme Cow spreadable cheese (two of each three flavours) to try with our family and friends. The kids and I decided it would be fun to have cheese and crackers as a snack a couple of hours before dinner one night - an appetizer if you will. Since La Creme Cow spreadable cheese comes in individually wrapped wedges, we were able to try more than just one kind in one sitting.



We set up the provided cutting board with utensils and plates and the kids chose some toppings for the cheese and crackers; coldcut meats, pickles etc. I cut them up into thin slices so the kids could make cracker sandwiches. La Creme Cow easily spreads on crackers, it's flavourful and creamy. K wanted one wedge after another but I stopped her at two. Even though they are really yummy and low in fat I didn't want her to fill up on just cheese and crackers as it was just a snack.


The kids prefered the original and light La Creme Cow to the Parmeasan & Peppercorn but then again they aren't big fans of anything peppery. I think they are all tasty, the Parmesan & Peppercorn one has a real zing of flavour to it.

Not only does it make a great after school snack but La Creme Cow goes great in the lunch bag paired with an ice pack to keep it cool. La Creme Cow spreadable cheese makes a great healthy snack any time!

Thumbs up!

You can also try these simple and yummy ways to use La Creme Cow spreadable cheese to help spice up the traditional cheese and crackers snack or appetizer:
*La Creme Cow Original cheese spread on a cracker with some sliced berries or grapes topped with pomegranate. A simple yet delicious and healthy option.
*La Creme Cow Parmesan & Peppercorn cheese spread on a cracker with a simple green garnish like lime, pea sprouts or green onions, served on a plate with a little pot of red pepper jelly.
*La Creme Cow Light cheese spread on a cracker with slices of cucumber and snipped chives. Light cheese makes this a tasty, calorie friendly option.

La Creme Cow spreadable cheese will be the talk of your next party or playdate - at least at the snack table.
