Feta Cheese

 

1-ounce of feta cheese supplies 140mg of calcium. It helps to keep our bones strong, supports the health of our heart, muscles and nerves. The same serving of feta cheese contains 0.48 mcg of vitamin B12, which helps to promote red blood cell production and helps keep your brain functioning normally. If you wish, you could opt for reduced-fat feta cheese to lower your intake of saturated fat by about one-third.
