Does [portion] size matter?
When it comes to our deliciously creamy foil wrapped cheesy triangles, I’d say The Laughing Cow have the right size sussed.
You see, we know what it’s like to want more of the good stuff. Our cheese spread is pretty darn delish. That’s why our individually wrapped triangles are a genius way to portion control the amount we all eat.
Why do we portion our products?
Here comes the science bit: The larger the portion of food, the more food is eaten (makes sense). People eat less when given individually packaged food. They generally eat only one portion. That’s why individual portions are recommended to limit over-consumption (clever scientists).
So mooove over nibbling, make way for mindful snacking, on the go or in the home.
4 more reasons to buy portioned cheese spread
The right size cheese spread portion not only curbs compulsive eating (good news if you’re anything like me!), it can offer you all this dairy deliciousness:
1. Our cunningly clever individual portions of cheese spread have been technologically designed – it’s true – to withstand a little time out of the fridge. This makes them great portable snacks and lunchbox additions.
2. Protein for development, growth and satiety. Eating small flavourful portions of dairy every day of the week (like our handy triangles), means you’ll get just the right amount to meet nutritional protein, calcium and phosphorus needs – and you can do this all the while satisfying your need for cheese spread!
- Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and to the maintenance of normal bones
- Phosphorus is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in children
3. Eating lower fat cheese as part of a balanced diet or lean meats, oily fish, dairy, complex carbohydrates (e.g. wholemeal bread) and lots of fresh fruit, salad and vegetables is smart eating. Your bones, body and taste buds will thank you.
4. Portions could reduce food waste too. Because according to the FAO (Food and Agricultural Organisation), one third of the food produced for human consumption is thrown away. That’s about 1.3 billion tonnes per year, 25% of which is from the milk and dairy industry. Individual portions mean you can just open what you need, and know that the rest will be fresh for next time, instead of being forgotten in the fridge. Happy planet.
