Cheese. Cheese?! CHEESE!
I think it’s easy to say everyone loves cheese. How can you not? (unless you’re lactose intolerant) It melts so well on bread, hamburgers, nacho and even a salad.
I have good news for you cheese lovers…KRAFT CHEESE IS CONSIDERED A HEALTH FOOD!
Kraft American singles is the first food received the new “Kids Eat Right” label approved by Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). The “Kids Eat Right” campaign was design to encourage families to make healthier choices at the grocery store. AND made a statement concerning that children aren’t getting the necessary amount of dairy, calcium and vitamin D.
HOWEVER, this update has been met with skepticism…
Food industry lawyer and researcher, Michele Simon discovered a “strong and ever-growing financial ties between the Academy and big food companies, including Kraft.”
Marion Nestle, a professor in the department of nutrition, food studies and public health at NYU, argued, “such seals are usually money-raising gimmicks. I’m wondering if ‘proud supporter of’ means that Kraft pays AND for use of this seal. If so, I’d like to know what the seal costs.”

According to FDA Standards, Kraft American singles can’t even be considered cheese because the products is not mad with 51% real cheese.
