Though cheese is very tasty and is added in many daily life foods but it is a fact that it is full of fat. As these days, people prefer foods which contain less fat so cheese is being ignored but it is very good for the health of children because fats are the essential components of children's food to improve their physical and mental health. Beside containing fat, very few people know that it is beneficial for human health also because it contains some important nutrients in its composition for example proteins, vitamin A, vitamin B2 and vitamin B12, zinc, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
