The following are suggestions from the experts at Jarlsberg:

Tweak breakfast, lunch and snacks for greater nutritional impact. Add a handful of trail mix and fresh fruit to yogurt; blend up antioxidant-rich wild berry smoothies with a dash of cinnamon and honey. Low-fat chocolate milk is a guaranteed, calcium-boosting pleaser. Swirl in a cup of applesauce to morning oatmeal.

When possible, buy seasonal, organic or local produce for fresher, flavorful options (buying locally also supports the community economy). Reduce use of chemically preserved meats and cheeses. Choose no-nitrite turkey breast or grill hormone-, antibiotic-free chicken cutlets at home for salads and wraps.

Instead of processed cheese, alternate with all-natural, part-skim milk Jarlsberg or Jarlsberg Lite ... calcium-rich and lower in sodium, too. Combine mustards or low-fat mayo with homemade pestos. These simple to assemble ideas will no doubt win family praise and inspire other creative combinations.

-- Line pita with dark green lettuce and stuff with mixture of diced

celery, apple or pear and Jarlsberg. Add a touch of pesto or raspberry

vinaigrette.

-- Combine low fat mayo with cranberry sauce; spread on whole wheat

Lavash. Layer with baby arugula or spinach, sliced roasted turkey and

Jarlsberg. Roll up ... serve with grapes or orange slices.

-- Spread low fat Caesar dressing on large tortilla. Layer with dark leaf

lettuce, strips of grilled chicken breast and Jarlsberg.

-- Try this healthy take on a popular, process-cheese-filled snack. Mix

1/2 cup shredded Jarlsberg Lite with peanut butter. Use unsalted

crackers to "sandwich." Refrigerate to keep mixture hard. Serve at

room temperature so texture is creamy. For potassium "punch," pair with

banana.
