Cream cheese

Cream cheese in a child's breakfast

In the morning, both your child's body and mind need energy to work. This energy is provided to children by the breakfast meal. Kids who take breakfast before going to school concentrate more in their class, and participate in better manner. Carbohydrates are very important as a source of energy in a child's breakfast, but a child also needs other nutrition such as protein and calcium to support the growth of muscles, teeth and bones. In case your child skips breakfast, make arrangements for some handy food.

Cheese sandwich is one of the good handy food that kids like. You can do it in no time and handle to your child to eat even while travelling to school.

Cream cheese frosting

Cream cheese goes well frosting with many cakes such as strawberry cake and carrot cake. It can be also used as a filling in most pastries and muffins.

      You're most welcomed Cloverleaf. I know there are too many things we don't know that it's very easy to make them, like cheese, jelly and jam.
