Q: My daughter is 10 years old and having a thin structure. Her weight is 30 kg. She is very fond of paneer (cottage cheese) and cheese. What quantity of paneer and cheese is safe to consume?
A:Homemade paneer is definitely good for your daughter. You can give 80 to 100 gms of paneer 2-3 times in a week. It is very good source of calcium, protein, vitamins, energy. Do not use fried paneer. Use the whey of paneer in your cooking. Cheese should be given in restricted amounts since it is high in saturated fats and salt. But you can use it once in 15 days.
