Future Fromager?

Babies are not supposed to have dairy before a year…and Baby Diva is still about three weeks shy of that milestone.

However, today she had a little first taste of cheese.

We were in a fabulous local cheese shop and reminiscing about our favorite neighborhood cheese store back when we were living in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan.

Captain Dad and I sampled and purchased a yummy goat cheese (and as an aside, if you are in the area, you have to check out the fantastic goat cheese produced at this goat farm).

Then, the sweet lady behind the counter asked if Baby Diva were old enough to sample a mild, but flavorful pasteurized cow’s milk cheese from Holland. I decided to give it a try.

That’s right, Baby Diva’s first taste of non-mama dairy was Vlaskaas, a Dutch cheese from a specialty shop.

No Kraft singles for my girl.

    The Manhattan shop or the North Fork shop or farm?

    dawn–I know, I’m so terrible! Ha! LOVED it…I had to keep her from scarfing it all down. I didn’t want to overdo it lest there be a tummy ache later. No problems, though! Thanks for clicking on Baby Diva!
