Cheese: Cheese can be introduced between ages 8-10 months. Make sure pieces are smaller than your baby's finger (also size of baby's trachea) to decrease choking risk. Careful also with melted cheese as it may also be a choking hazard. Consider also adding yoghurt at this age. However wait until 1 year of to add whole milk as a replacement for breastmilk or formula.
