    sweets and cakes can provide us with nutrition. But this is only for people who really need it. Remember that we use vitamins to get those good things in our bodies. A doctor will always say that food is better than vitamin substitutes. Cake and sweets can have milk, making it better than substitutes. But that doesn't mean you have an excuse for eating cake all the time. This is because it has a lot and i mean a lot of sugar, which can raise our bp. But i am not saying that cake is the best thing you can eat for getting milk into your bodies. There is also stuff like yogurt, or ice cream is even better than cake because ice cream has more milk.

    What I am trying to say is that cake can be good if you eat it sometimes, meaning not every day. Just like candy has no nutrition because its just artificial fruits and sugar. Thats like putting double sugar candy. So when you eat candy, your just eating sugar. So if you do eat cake, eat it carefully in little portions meaning only 1 PIECE.

    No. They do provide us with nutritious substances, but they do more harm than they do good. They are packed full of sugars and saturated fats. They are high GI (Glycemic Index) which means they release all of their energy into your system at once and will burn off in about 20 minutes. They should not become a whole food group in your daily diet, because you get a very healthy amount of them through fruits, vegetables, red meats and carbohydrate foodstuffs (bread, cereal, rice, noodles, pasta etc.). Dark chocolate (70% Cocoa and above) has been proven to be high in antioxidants, and would be fairly good for you. This doesn't give you an excuse to go stuff your face full of dark chocolate. In any case, you would get sick of it after a while because it is pretty bitter. Some cakes would be significantly healthier than others. For example, a black forest cake would be extremely rich and fattening, unlike a much healthier (still not very healthy) fruit cake. Sweets can be eaten often as long as they aren't consumed in large servings. Sweets are often individually wrapped and vary in size from a pea to maybe a red globe grape. Now "eaten often" does not mean every 10 minutes, I mean like one or two a day is perfectly fine, as long as they aren't super unhealthy. None of the aforementioned foods (with the exception of dark chocolate) are at all healthy. A diet consisting of even one slice of cake a day has more than a 20% increased chance of heart diseased and increased cholesterol. Even buttering your toast every morning puts more than three kilograms of pure fat into your system annually.

    No, just eat those sparingly. (not often) It's hard to do, but it's all for the good of your health.
