While Nutella may not contain artificial colors or flavors, the first two ingredients such as sugar and palm oil (aka trans fats) could be just as bad if not worse!

This commercial utterly confounded me the first time I saw it. Nutella, healthy? In what world? Saying on "whole-grain toast or a whole wheat waffle..." this is like all of those sugary cereal commercials that say "part of a balanced breakfast," but the cereal is surrounded by two pieces of fruit, an egg, and a glass of OJ. Also, it looks like those slices of bread have way more than the recommended serving (2 tbsp I believe?) but I could be wrong. I love Nutella, but this commercial is misleading on so many levels.

This ad conveniently avoids mentioning all the other ingredients in Nutella that you wouldn't want to boast about, and the only ingredient you might consider beneficial is the hazelnuts...but again, so processed you can't even tell there used to be real food in there. I love Nutella. I know what's in it, and I choose to eat it as a treat every so often. But misleading families into thinking it's somehow good for you when spread on whole-wheat something is just screwed up. It's a dessert topping, and it has its place.
