The correct portion size of Nutella

Your Question

what is the correct serving size of a jar of nuttella


Hello there, 
We understand your concern about the correct serving size of Nutella. It’s great that you’re thinking about portion sizes and making healthy choices. When it comes to Nutella or any indulgent treat, moderation is key. The recommended serving size for Nutella is about two tablespoons, 37g. This allows you to enjoy the delicious taste without overdoing it. However, it is important to know, that the hazelnut spread’s main ingredient is sugar.
While Nutella can be a tasty treat, it’s important to remember to balance it with other nutritious foods. Our bodies need a variety of nutrients to grow and function properly, especially during the teenage years. Aim to include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins in your diet to ensure you’re getting all the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs.
