Nutella is not allowed in my home. Lol. One standard size jar of Nutella contains 2,000 calories, which means every time I raise the spoon to my lips (I don't use it as a condiment, it's the main course for me) I consume 200 calories in one fell swoop.

Buuuuut if you can exercise more self-control and portion snacks out, Nutella is phenomenal in Puppy Chow (the recipe is on the side of the Chex Mix cereal box).

may be an option to make your own healthier version?

The site I found with the Nutella ingredients:

INGREDIENTS: SUGAR, PALM OIL, HAZELNUTS, COCOA, SKIM MILK, REDUCED MINERALS WHEY (MILK), LECITHIN AS EMULSIFIER (SOY), VANILLIN: AN ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR.

your decision whether you wish to consume it or not, I suspect

as a side note --

when I REALLY want Nutella, they sell these things called "Nutella to Go" and it is a single serve portion - great way to enjoy it, but not keep it in the house

I don't look at any food as either "good" or "bad". Sure, some stuff is a healthier choice. And some of the most yummy stuff, is not such a healthy choice. I try to make healthy choices most of the time, but life isn't about just always eating healthy (speaking just for myself here). Things like Nutella fall into the treat category for me. Just like Little Debbie Nutty bars. Love those things. And potato chips on an American cheese sandwich (white bread) with that bright yellow mustard. I don't eat those things every day, but because I treat them like a, well, treat-- I think I enjoy them more when I DO eat them.

Nutella is one of my favourite things:) I grew up with it and have always loved it. But it is definitely a treat now. I rarely buy it anymore because I find it very hard to resist and end up eating way too much of it.

Oh, I love that. From now on I will call it frosting. Thanks!

I lost a lot of weight and maintained it for years, then I got all stressed and busy and lost my way. Starting over from a much better place (way less to lose this time!) and making things better.

sadly Nutella is one of those, I can't keep it in my house foods... I think moderation is the key and using it on occasion is fine.

Nutella doesn't fall into my "everyday food" category.

There's always a healthier option if you DIY.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!

I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.

I'm all for moderation; however, I think everyone has certain items that they can't do "moderation" with. I can do moderation with Nutella, but my husband can not. I have a little jar of it that I keep in my house for an occassional nutella covered graham cracker, but most of the time, it stays at the store. I can't do moderation with Chex Mix, Diet Coke, Oreos (or most other sandwich cookies), etc. Just doesn't work too well.

"My kids like it plus I used it as a chocolate drizzle over some banana s and I will try it on some strawberries. I will definitely keep it in moderation and only on occasion"

Perfect plan. if you like it, don't deprive yourself of it. Just think of it as a treat rather than adding healthy fat to an apple or banana for a snack like I like using real peanut butter for.

Just don't make a big PB&J with it. That sugar rush will send your kids through the roof lol

Unfortunately, nutella is on the bad boy list. Sad because I absolutely LOVE nutella. But I dont buy it anymore because I'm one to over indulge next thing you know, the whole jar is gone :(

However, i did find a homemade Nutella recipe here on SP: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?

It's heavily processed. If you're looking for something healthier, it's very easy to make your own hazelnut spread with no artificial ingredients.

Love4kitties hit the nail on the head. It's frosting! Whipped fat and sugar with some nut butter mixed in. As frostings go, it's probably healthier than most of the frosting you get in a can, but if I remember right it actually has more calories. If you can have something like that in your house and only have a teaspoon or two now and then, it's fine, but most of us would probably eat way too much!

I might frost a cake with it, but it's definitely not a health food.

If you could find a natural nut butter and mix a teaspoon of chocolate syrup into it. I imagine that would be a better option.

If you must have nutella and you measure and track it. Eat it in moderation. Its not a really great snack. Just as long as your not one of those people that eats the entire jar in one sitting with a spoon.

I don't like putting food in to "good" and "bad" lists because I think moderation is the key, but I think Nutella is darn hard to work in to a healthy eating and weight loss plan except as a very occasional treat. A lot of calories for a small serving and very little nutritional value. For all intents and purposes it's candy.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

I have to agree that Nutella is nutritionally horrible, but if it's something that you liked the taste of then you might want to look in to picking up some natural nut butter (almond or hazelnut or peanut or whatever) that is made with nothing but the nuts, and mixing it with unsweetened cocoa powder. This will give you the chocolate/nut flavour, along with all of the nutrition of the natural nut butter and the cocoa.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

I try to subscribe to the moderation way. I like nutella, but don't eat it every day, it's more of a treat food, like any other chocolate would be. And 90% of the time it isn't even in my pantry.

But it makes a darned fine s'more.

Leave it on the shelf.

The first two ingredients are sugar and palm oil.... then a few hazelnuts. That's why there is only 2 grams of protein in a serving...yet the sugar and fat are provding almost 200 calories and 5 teaspoons of sugar. What a marketing SCAM!

Nutella is God's way of telling you that you really do not want to actually eat healthier....just kidding. No, Nutella is not good for you in pretty much any way. It is basically a small amount of healthy nuts mixed in with a bunch of sugar and chocolate.

I recently tried nutella and I like it. So before I get too deep into loving it. Is it on the good list of snacks or bad list?
