Organic Valley, the nation’s largest cooperative of organic farmers and a leading organic brand announced a cause initiative with Healthy Child Healthy World to support a shared mission: protect children from harmful chemicals and feed them safe, nutritious food.
“The foods we eat and the way we prepare them exposes our children to highly toxic chemicals,” says Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, Healthy Child Healthy World 2010 Mom on a Mission winner and ambassador for the campaign. “I am delighted to be a part of Organic Valley’s landmark American Cheese Revolution Tour, a powerful and innovative way to educate American families on the importance of ‘real’ food. Switching to organic dairy is one of my top three tips for reducing chemical exposure, so the partnership of Organic Valley and Healthy Child Healthy World is a dynamic opportunity to inform parents and reduce our kids’ chemical pollution,” continued Jagessar. Organic Valley has long been a corporate donor of Healthy Child Healthy World. For the past ten years, Organic Valley has worked with the national children’s environmental health non-profit to protect children’s rights to good health through a safe and clean environment with the help of community engagement, outreach, and financial support.
Organic Valley is the only national brand to produce unprocessed, 100 percent real organic American Singles—not “processed cheese food.” Organic Valley American Singles have that mild, cheesy taste kids love and are made from the same ingredients as all Organic Valley cheese: gluten-free and produced without antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs from the dedicated farmer-owners of Organic Valley.

Use softened butter to butter the bread first. Cheddar cheese and a slice of deli ham 🙂 MMM
Sarah Parisi says
Mmmm.. any grilled cheese with bacon is awesome!
I love making grilled cheese with sprouted (usually Ezekiel) bread: I fire up the griddle and use this morning’s bacon grease, fry up two pieces of bread, flip them over, add cheese (cheddar, monterey jack or meunster) and then put the other slice on top, turn off the heat and cover it with a frying pan lid for a couple of minutes. the cheese melts amazingly. Best. grilled cheese. ever.
Whole grain bread with butter, a little American, colby jack, and munster, tomatoes sliced (preferrable from the garden), and a little mayo.

I usually use Jarlsberg cheese and add some avocado slices – so good! And of course I have it with tomato soup.
