We’re not just another British Cheddar cheese maker!
Cheeky Cow is the result of years of experience making the finest quality Cheddar. She’s a new era of healthy cheese and she’s winning plenty of awards, even beating reduced fat cheddar alternatives (Devon County Show 2014).
Don’t think rubbery and tasteless – we’re not in that game. Think healthy, tasty cheese with all the texture, flavour & functionality of full fat cheddar but with only half the fat, plus less salt.
Some cheese lovers looking for a healthy alternative might just call all this a winning combination!
“Cheeky Cow Half Fat cheese is also LACTOSE FREE* and an official VEGETARIAN SOCIETY APPROVED product”
Price & health benefits
Cheeky is priced in line with standard cheddars so all you luverly parents and cheese lovers can enjoy a genuinely tasty and healthy alternative to full fat Cheddar without hitting your wallets…proper job and proper tasty!
Get a hoof of this though…eating healthy, half fat cheese can help overall family health as proven by a recent study that found a family of 4 switching to half fat mature cheese from full fat cheddar for 12 months will consume:
- 17,870 fewer calories per year
- 2.06kgs less fat per year
- 1.29kgs less saturated fat per year
Cheeky’s Vital Nutritional Stats
We don’t take fat out of the process…we simply don’t put it in thanks to using semi skimmed rather than full fat milk. This means Cheeky Cow gives you a great Calcium and protein hit but with lower calories (just 80 per 30g), 50% less fat and 30% less salt versus a standard cheddar.
Basically, Cheeky’s vital stats impress the socks off everyone who tries her, which is why we like to call her our little ‘goodness smuggler’!

For anyone following a Slimming World diet, we just happen to have this insight from a Slimming World consultant and Team Developer:
“I particularly liked the cheese as we can only have 40g of low fat cheddar per day. Having it grated is also great as you seem to get a lot of cheese for your 40gs”.
