Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Singer Kelly Clarkson showed off on her social media account a photo of her daughter eating Nutella and she got attacked by the internet.

Many pointed out the amount of sugar one tablespoon of the chocolatey spread has and they accused the singer of child abuse for giving her daughter such snack.

Clarkson’s daughter, two-year-old River, looked like she enjoyed the hazelnut-choco spread because it was the first time Clarkson let her have it. While others thought the video was adorable, others gave their two cents by saying Nutella is bad for health and that the chocolate spread gives people cancer. Another wrote that Nutella is packed with different kinds of sugar.

Another went as far as saying, “Giving food like this to a child is child abuse.” One more commenter said Clarkson should stop making her daughter as fat as her.

Many parents defended Clarkson after others criticized her. Some said Nutella toast is the bomb and their kids also loved it while another Instagram user said she gave her baby Nutella when she was only six months old and her child is perfectly fine now.

One of those who criticized Clarkson for giving such food to her baby also defended herself. She said that there is 11.5 grams of sugar in one tablespoon. She went on to explain that such amount of sugar is intended for adults with a 2,000-calorie diet.

Last year a photo showing what a jar of Nutella contains shocked many due to its sugar content. There are 57 teaspoons of sugar per jar of the much-loved chocolate spreads. Nutella countered the findings and said that the recommended portion size is 15 grams, which has 81 calories and contains only 8.5 grams of sugar.

A spokesperson for Ferrero, the maker of Nutella, pointed out that all the information regarding the sugar content of per jar of the spread are listed on the pack. They also underscored the fact that the product is aimed at adults and not at children.
