What kind of food do you associate with the first meal of the day ? Are you one who prefers only toast and a glass of milk or light breakfasts were not invented for you? Many of us are tea lovers, others simply cannot work if we did not first feel the aroma and taste of that first cup of coffee. Options are as diverse as cultures and personal preferences. But, because as many experts assure, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we should aim to make it balanced, nutritious and healthyIn general, although that does not mean that once or again we can not get out of the routine of cereals with skim milk or bagel and some fruit, to enjoy a succulent plate of fried eggs with bacon, or some good grits with butter to the Southern style… but having breakfast with desserts like Nutella may be going too far.
The courts have also reached this conclusion in the decision of a lawsuit filed by two California mothers against the Ferrero USA company, producer of Nutella, the popular chocolate and hazelnut cream. California moms filed their lawsuit alleging false advertising by the company, which claimed its product was healthy and appropriate for children's breakfast.
Actually, if you look at the nutrition facts on the label, you'll see that just a couple tablespoons of Nutella contain 200 calories, 21 grams of sugar and 11 grams of fat. It is certainly delicious, but from a nutritional point of view it is not a balanced option that provides us with the necessary energy to start the day. Instead you can choose a combination of protein, fruit, and cereals with high fiber content and low sugar, or make a fruit smoothie with skim milk; If you don't like milk, try mixing plain yogurt (we recommend Greek yogurt) with fruit and a layer of granola.
