Nutrition Info

Cheese

Cheese is not only gorgeous to eat but provides some important nutrients including phosphorus, calcium and vitamin B12. Phosphorus forms part of every one of our cells, so is pretty important! It’s actually quite abundant in the diet so you don’t have to OD on cheese – sorry 🙂

Calcium is not only good for teeth and bones but helps to balance the PH of the blood as well as assisting with nerve signals and muscle function. B12 performs a lot of functions but its main claim to fame is red blood cell production.

Good honest nutrition

I like you, you’re nice.
