Hi can anyone offer me some advice.My 1 year old daughter was given some dairy lea cheese spread by a friend and now she loves it as a non cheese eater myself is there a better quality product I could buy that tastes similar

Many thanks.

I like cheese, but not had dairy lea. My DS2 likes philadelphia but also stronger tastes too - camembert, cheddar (he is a bit older). He is particularly keen on garlic flavour philly!

Is it like laughing cow?

Can't think of anything....except getting her into cream cheese or cheddar. I never liked dairy lea as a cheese hating child or as a cheese loving adult.

I would just give her the dairylea, it's not poison.

Dairylea and Laughing Cow are pretty similar. I'd just give her either of those - it's a processed cheese spread, you're not really going to find a quality version.

If you have a food processor you can make a very lovely cheese spred yourself from any hard cheese you like... just cut the cheese (I like mature Cheddar, you could use mild) into smallish pieces snd whizz it until it looks like cheesy rubble, then add a tbsp of milk and whizz again. Add a couple of tsp of mild oil (sunflower, rapeseed, etc) and whizz again. Scrape into pot. This also makes THE BEST cheese on toast smile
