What else can you do with cheese spreads? #CheezWhizCheeseventions
By : Omni A. Larrosa, #TheClingyFam
One great challenge of a mom is preparing a meal that will surely be enjoyed by her kids. Preparing snacks for children is not so easy as 1, 2 and 3. Sometimes, it could feel like you are an underdog contender in a cooking competition similar to Master Chef where your judges are no less than your kids. You think of a lot of ways to make sure that what you present to them is a winning entry. First, you choose the best ingredients that you think will satisfy their taste buds, and also healthy at the same time. Next, you try to be more creative in your plating using ordinary plates or bowls at home because eyes eat first. And finally, you put the biggest smile on your face while calling each of your kids’ names and afterwards, you shout “Merienda Time!”.
Then, after all these preparations, they end up not liking the food you prepared. Isn’t that frustrating? Otherwise, if they liked it, the struggle does not end there because the next day, you gotta think of something new to prepare, or your next enemy would be taste fatigue.
Not so many moms have the knowledge on different herbs, spices or other ingredients that can put a twist to a regular meal or snack. Also, there are thousands of other things that a parent thinks about which are equally important to his child’s nutrition.
So how do we resolve this? There are many possible answers. But for a mom like me who has so little knowledge about cooking, I would mostly think of how to use existing resources in our shelves or just prepare those that are already proven and approved by my kids- like bread and cheese.
Our kids love bread and cheese so much! I guess they got that from us. So, we always have bread loaf and cheese palaman like Cheez Whiz or Eden Cheese inside our ref. These are also part of the default items in our grocery list. The challenge now is how to make this simple meal more exciting.
This is why we feel so privileged to be invited to the launch of Cheez Whiz’ #CheezWhizCheeseventions campaign last May 8, 2018. Cheez Whiz, the number one cheese spread in the country, has been spreading goodness during snack time for over 50 years. What makes it the leading cheese spread in the county is its thickness and amazing cheesy flavor.

Cheez Whiz’ thickness is an explosion of flavor that goes with everything. Cheez Whiz is not only for making Creamy Cheesy Sandwiches but for creating different “Cheeseventions” snacks as well. Kids of all ages can enjoy creating and mixing Cheez Whiz with other ingredients. Its two amazing flavors Original and Pimiento can drive kid’s imagination to create snacks! Make a sandwich tower! Cheez Whiz Mac and Cheese! Use Cheez Whiz as a dip! The possibilities are endless!
