How long have humans been eating cheese? Why does cheese taste better when you eat it with your fingers? Do happy cows make better tasting milk? This week on Time For Lunch, Hannah and Harry are exploring the real star of the dairy family; cheese! Expert Liz Thorpe teaches us about the history of cheese (spoiler alert: cheese has been around for a long time) and mother-daughter duo, Heather and Maya Engwall teach us how to get creative with snack time. Plus we’ve got a new joke for you and lots and lots of fun facts!
