Ice cream comes with a number of benefits for overall health, according to Mag For Women. It contains calcium, phosphorus and vitamins A, B-12, C, D, E and K, as well as thiamine, niacin and riboflavin, all of which are important nutrients.
Ice cream also provides a lot of carbohydrates, which can provide energy. Obviously, portion control is a major concern, as ice cream also contains a good deal of fat. People who take in a lot more calories than they need end up packing on extra pounds in a hurry, according to Time. All in all, though, ice cream in moderate amounts does have a number of health benefits.
