Happy National Cheese Lovers Day!

It’s National Cheese Lovers day and the perfect time to celebrate all that cheese has to offer! Cheese has transformed since its origin from ancient times and with its versatility, great taste, and health benefits, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon!

As if the taste and gooey goodness of cheese wasn’t enough, cheese also boasts an impressive bundle of nutrients. Calcium, protein, and phosphorus make a powerful package helping all consumers alike build strong bones, lower blood pressure, reduce risk for diabetes, and maintain a healthy weight.

So next time you’re feeling the bleus or simply gouda craving, you can feel good about giving in to the gooey goodness of cheese. Be sure to share your cheesy adventures on social media using the hashtag #CheeseLoversDay. While you’re at it, be sure to tag us #idahodairy.
