Nutritionist Ekaterina Aleksandrova, in an interview with the Zvezda TV channel on Monday, April 26, told how much cake can be eaten without harm to health.
According to the specialist, the use of a large amount of sweet and starchy foods, in particular, Easter cakes, can cause a blow to health. Meanwhile, there is a “harmless” norm for the use of this festive delicacy.

She added that it is recommended “not to eat the cake, but to taste” it, that is, to consume no more than 100 g per day at a time, the website 360tv.ru writes.
