It is best to avoid processed cheese as these usually contain a lot of chemicals, salt, preservatives, flavor enhancer etc. It is best to stick to natural cheese for babies and toddlers. Here are some that are considered safe: Cheddar, Parmesan, Edam, Colby, Colby Jack, Swiss, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Romano, Provolone, Red Leicester, Gouda, Cottage Cheese, Ricotta, Mascarpone, Cream Cheese (list is not exhaustive) And here are some to avoid: Brie, Camembert, Chevre, Queso Blanco, Queso Fresco (list is not exhaustive) Another thing to look out for when choosing cheese would be the sodium content.
