You can offer low FODMAP cheeses and crackers on a serving tray. Good low FODMAP cheese options include cheddar, fresh mozzarella pearls, and blue cheese. When buying cheese, be sure to look at the nutrition label. One gram or less of carbohydrates means the cheese should be low in lactose, so long as you don’t overdo it on portion sizes.
Mary’s Gone Crackers Originals or Good Thins Simply Salt are good low FODMAP cracker options. Mary’s brand also just released a new version of crackers called Real Thin Crackers, which I served to several non-gluten free friends recently and we all loved them with cheese!
