Is Nutella healthy?

While Nutella does contain some hazelnuts, cocoa, and milk, it’s also high in sugar and fat. As a result, it’s not considered a health food. However, like most things, Nutella can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

Nutella Hazelnut spread is gluten free, and only contains 7 ingredients, no artificial colors, and no preservatives, according to the package container.
