    I don't care. Chocolate over hazelnut is a good thing IMO, but I
    don't eat it for my health either.

    You have good taste. I dislike hazelnuts slightly less than Brazil nuts. Brazillians should be hopping mad about having that loser nut named after them. :-)

    One of my favourite chocolate bars used to be one with dark chocolate
    and hazel nuts.It is a perfect combination.

    It was originally an Italian product and under Italian law did not
    contain enough chocolate to be sold as a chocolate product.

    FWIW.... here is what Nutealla says on its Canadian site:


    Research shows that children do best starting their day with a healthy
    breakfast to feel and do their best. Canada’s Food Guide recommends
    including at least 3 out of the 4 Food Groups (Vegetables & Fruit, Grain
    Products, Milk Products, Meats & Alternatives) as part of a balanced
    breakfast – such a complete meal provides the right blend of nutrients
    essential for healthy living.

    Leading studies show that children who eat a balanced breakfast:

    - Perform better at school
    - Are more likely to meet the nutritional intake needed for healthy
    growth and development
    - Tend to have a healthier body weight than children who skip breakfast



    http://www.nutella.ca/english/nutrients



    I don't know if this site has been amended since the law suit in the US,
    but when I read that I did not see anything that claimed that Nutella
    was a healthy food. It points out that the Food Guide recommends
    including at least 4 of the fruit groups as part of a balanced breakfast
    and specifies, vegetables, fruit, grain and milk products. There is
    nothing that says that Nutella contains those elements.

    The idea is to spread the Nutella on bread or toast. Since it already
    has lots of fat in it, and fat is an essential part of the human diet,
    you don't need butter. It is not much different that jams and jellies,
    which are at least half sugar, and don't contain much real nutrition.
    They just make the bread or toast taste better, and the grain in the
    bread is one of the food groups.

    This leaves me with another question. I wonder if the mother who started
    the action gives her kids a proper healthy whole grain bread or if she
    serves them the over process white bread that is the staple of most
    North American households. It is more than a little ironic to complain
    about the Nutella not being a healthy food if she is opting for the less
    healthy white bread.

    I'll have to try this stuff sometime. (Nutella) Do you normally spread on
    toast? Sounds like a good late night sweet snack, not some wholesome
    breakfast or whatever.

    Yes, originally. But now, it's majorly chocolaty. The hint of cocoa
    description, in use NOW, does not fit the product.

    You can put in on bread or toast, on ice cream, even on crepes. It is
    much too sweet for me to eat as a night time snack. I like the stuff,
    but I have trouble with nuts so I have to avoid it.

    I have to say that I don't think that I have ever seen their
    advertising. I realize that advertisers tend to play fast and loose with
    the truth, so I can't imagine anyone ever believing that a product like
    that, a sweet chocolatey spread for bread, actually being healthy. The
    bread that you eat it on might me. So, caveat emptor should indeed be
    applicable and AFAIAC anyone stupid enough to believe that it is healthy
    is just too damn stupid to matter much. I don't think the woman who
    started this is really that stupid. She is just a predator looking for a
    way to make a name for herself and a few bucks.

    Cake is also made with fresh milk and eggs, that does not make it health
    food. I saw this woman during a television interview, and she said that
    she did not have time to read product labels. I almost fell out of my
    chair. She does not read the labels on food that she feeds to her
    children? Unreal, this woman needs parenting classes. Whatever made her
    think a product, that is similar to chocolate frosting, would be healthy
    for her children?

    The ad I saw in an on line article about this lawsuit did not make me think
    that Nutella was a healthy product, just that it was considered by some good
    for breakfast.

    Just another scam lawsuit.

    She had time to launch a lawsuit, but she didn't have time to glance at
    the nutrition information on the package? I guess I was right.... the
    real aim was the fame and financial reward.

    What's up with this "doesn't have time" business? I've seen that
    excuse used here too. Doesn't want to is more like it, "can't"
    because her eyes are bad or maybe she never learned to read... but
    doesn't have the time isn't a good enough excuse. People who work 80+
    hour weeks at demanding jobs have the time, so some mom who is
    schlepping kids to school, soccer and ballet has the time too.

    Thanks. Is that a new one or one of the old ones?
    She loves it because it is a quick and easy way to get their family to
    have a breakfast they will want to eat. A delicious hazlenut spread
    that is perfect on whole grain toast or even wholewheat waffles. Made
    with simple quality ingredients, like hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of
    cocoa. She feels good that they are ready to tackle the day. Then it
    pictures ... Breakfast never tasted this good.... and fades to a picture
    of a glass of orange juice and some whole grain bread..


    The way I see it.... it doesn't really hype the Nutella has being a
    health food, just a tasty one that makes the healthy stuff, the whole
    grain bread, go down better, along with that glass of juice.

    And what the heck is with the juice? The high sugar content pretty well
    negates the benefits. The kids would be better off with an orange or
    some other fruit.
