Chedds from Cathedral City


If the sheer monotony of providing children's snacks and lunchbox contents drives you up the parenting wall, then Chedds - a brand new snacking range for kids - will cheer you up no end.

Chedds is a brand new kids' snack made from the nation's favourite cheese, Cathedral City*. With its characteristic smooth, mild flavour, Chedds is tasty, nutritious and great for growing children.

Made from 100% real Cheddar, Chedds is a great source of calcium, which is essential for strong teeth and bones, with each mini-pack containing at least 24% of the RNI (Reference Nutrient Intake) for children aged seven to ten years.

Chedds is the long-awaited perfect solution to lunchbox and snacking dilemmas and, whilst they'll enjoy the taste and fun formats available, you'll be happy that they're getting something natural and nutritious into their hungry tums.  



Varieties available

Chedds is real cheese, cut straight from a block of Cathedral City Mild Cheddar with nothing added, no messing around - just delicious ways for children to enjoy great tasting Cheddar snacks.

Chedds is available in three child-friendly varieties:

  • Cheese and Toasties – mini slices of real Cheddar and melba toast
  • Nibbles – a mini bag of bite sized Cheddar cubes that kids will love to share
  • Bricks – mini blocks of Cheddar that are perfect for kids on the go

All three variants come in multi pack format and are individually wrapped, making it easy for you to pop into a lunchbox or school bag, ensuring that kids can enjoy the great taste and goodness of Chedds. As well as tasting great, each pack has the cheeky Chedds mouse and a fun fact or joke that children can swap with their friends.


Nutritional value

 All Chedds variants fit within the School Food Trust nutrient targets for lunchboxes and because they're made from 100% Cheddar, they're a source of protein and fall within the 'essential' food group (dairy) that should be included in a lunchbox every day.

Independent nutritionist Juliette Kellow says: "It is essential for children's growth that they have a varied and balanced diet; however, it's important to keep them excited by what they eat. Cheddar is a great source of calcium and protein to keep bones strong and healthy and the lunchbox snacking format makes Chedds fun, as well as tasty and nutritious."

Available from major supermarkets nationwide from 1 August 2011, manufacturer's recommended retail price is £1.99 per multi-pack of Chedds.
