Cheese with Fruit for To Go Lunches

Make back to school lunches a healthy, gourmet treat!

With the school year here it's time to add a little gourmet flare to your lunch box! Whether packing up for work or school, making lunch breaks truly satisfying is a great way to get the most out of your day!

Using Ile de France Cheeses makes bringing invigorating flavors for lunch easy. It's also an excellent way to create simple, healthy snacks. The naturally sweet flavors of fruit are one of the best companions to our cheeses. Using this combination takes everyday lunches to a whole new level of flavor.

Here are four simple lunch pleasures featuring fruit and cheese:

Ile de France Brie and Apple Bagel Sandwich
Crisp apple slices, smooth creamy Brie and a hearty sliced bagel create an excellent sandwich. A refreshingly varied texture allows this sandwich to outshine any peanut butter and jelly or turkey sandwich - and it's just as easy to make!

Ile de France Roquefort and Pears on Crackers and Honey
Salty Roquefort Cheese has a luxuriously creamy texture and a smooth, salty flavor that's a perfect contrast for sweet, mild flavored pears. Pack the combination for lunch along with some thick crackers and top it with nuts or honey.

Cubed Etorki and Fol Epi with Mixed Berries and Grapes
These hard cheeses have a smooth texture that is positively scrumptious with crisp, juicy berries and grapes. Pack raspberries, blueberries, red grapes or cherries in one sandwich bag, along with another bag with cheese cut into small squares. Eat them together by hand or take along a few tooth ticks to spear them with.

Ile de France Goat Cheese on Baguette with Sliced Melon
Baguette is a daily staple in France and is enjoyed at all meals. So bring a little taste of Paris in your lunch bag and spread some fresh-tasting Ile de France Goat Cheese onto a sliced baguette. In a separate bag, take some sliced cantaloupe or green melon and combine for healthy treat that will keep you satisfied all afternoon.
