Dear Vera,I used to love Nutella, I'd put tons of it on bread, I was a real Nutellaholic!A few years ago, I stopped eating it in the morning and slowly lost a few pounds, without changing anything else in my diet.I still find it good and eat some from time to time, but I don't think it is a good thing to say that Nutella is really healthy for children, at least not on a daily basis.There are plenty of calories in it, it's full of modified palm oil, and it certainly isn't organic.Quality bread, maybe with some (organic) jam on it, semi-skimmed milk and fruits probably make a better breakfast.Which doesn't mean one can't indulge from time to time! (Maybe on days when you are sure that your kids are going to make plenty of exercice?)Just saying... Sorry for being such a killjoy!
