Is ice cream really that bad for you?

I mean I understand it has quite a bit of sugar, but it also has calcium and not a whole lot of calories. Vanilla ice cream cones seem to be my weakness lately.

  • I also think in moderation it's okay. But, I try to buy Haagen Dazs or another icecream that is REAL...not a lot of weird chemicals.

    If you eat it in moderation, the cost isn't prohibitive.

  • There's really not that much fat in it either...Sugar is burned off almost immediately anyway. I get the all natural ice creams.

  • I've eaten a lot of ice cream throughout this pregnancy. It's my one weakness. (Yes, my doctor knows...and says it is okay!)

  • Well, not for pregnant mamas. BUT, if you're tryin to lose weight? You should really go with frozen yogurt, in moderation. Exercise in moderation if preganant too. If not, you better work out some.
