1.) Ice cream is full of calcium, which is important for bone health – teeth too. If you don’t want osteoporosis, eating lots of ice cream is solid preventative action.
2.) It is soothing after enduring a tonsilectomy or upper endoscopy.
3.) It is delicious and creamy.
4.) It comes in a variety of flavors, to please every palate.
5.) Some ice cream producers, such as Ben & Jerry’s, run companies with a strong sense of social responsibility. Ice cream socials are also good fundraisers, both small scale (like for the church down the street) and large scale (like the Scooper Bowl). Eating ice cream helps less fortunate folks.
