Cheeses 

* Can be healthy and beneficial in moderation

* Contain calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients

* Contain vitamin A and B-12

* May help teeth and bone health

* May help maintain normal blood pressure

* Have been linked to a decrease in risk of stroke

Just stick to low-fat, low-sodium and all natural cheeses, and in moderation. Ask your counselor how cheeses apply to your plan.
