National Cheese Day
I am sure you are aware June is Dairy Month, a time to salute Dairy Farmers and the Dairy Industry. I guess it is not surprising that National Cheese Day is during June Dairy Month! Yes, Sunday June 4th was National Cheese Day. While fluid milk consumption has decreased in all age categories over the years cheese consumption continues to increase! The major reason cheese consumption is increasing?
Certainly it is because of the convenience cheese offers and the nutritional benefits. It would be very difficult to consume a healthy diet and not include cheese and other dairy products. There are so many types of cheese that there is likely a type of cheese that fits everyone's tastes.
The main reason cheese consumption has more than doubled since the 1970's though, Pizza. Pizza is often called the most popular food and it would not be Pizza without cheese! Yes, Pizza is a Dairy Farmers best friend!
