- Milk chocolate (sugar; milk; chocolate; cocoa butter; milk fat; nonfat milk; soy lecithin; natural and artificial flavors)

Let’s focus on the nutrition. As most of the ingredients are sugar (sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup), it should come as no surprise that Cadbury Creme Eggs are full of carbohydrates aka ENERGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, each Egg contains 20 g of sugar. To give some perspective, the World Health Organization recommends about 25 g of sugar per day.
The other main ingredient after sugar is MILK. From previous posts on dairy products, we know that milk offers many nutrients, such as calcium (for strong bones!!!) and protein (the building blocks of our body!) And remember, dairy products are animal food products, which mean they contain the vitamin B12 (found naturally only in animal food products! however you can also obtain B12 from fortified plant products)
So when you consume a Cadbury Creme Egg this holiday, think about A LOT of ENERGY!!! topped off with a hint of calcium and protein! Check out the actual nutritional label here to see for yourself!
Remember to remain positive and educate yourself on the nutrients in the foods you consume. All foods can be part of a healthy diet if eaten with awareness! 🙂
Happy Easter everyone!! And for those who don’t celebrate, happy weekend and happy snacking!!
