Confectionery is food made mainly from sugar or sweet ingredients and consumed as a snack or dessert. Confectionery comes in many different forms and flavors, from chocolate and candy to cakes and ice cream. Confectionery is produced and consumed in many countries around the world and is particularly popular with children and young people.
Confectionery is high in calories and often contains a lot of fat and sugar. They should therefore only be consumed in moderation to reduce the risk of obesity and other health problems. However, there are healthier candies that are made from plant-based ingredients and contain less sugar and fat. It is important to make sure that these sweets are also consumed in moderation.
