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).

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.
