You are

a slot machine for gambling electronic games.

I have an arm but not a leg.

One colloquial term for these machines is "one-armed bandits".

I like fruits but I don't eat healthy.

Another is "fruit machines".

I can spin but I can't jump.

They often have spinning reels.

The title might refer to the fact that

many people love playing on these machines but hate the inevitable loss of money that results.

    $\begingroup$ @pirate I got it at once as well, only to discover that an answer had been given :/ the idea of 'one-armed bandit' was the giveaway. $\endgroup$ – Arnaud Mortier Mar 24 at 17:47

Trying something different.

You are a

Business subsidiary / division

I have an arm but not a leg.

Google definition of arm: a branch or division of a company or organization.

I like fruits but I don't eat healthy.

A division that makes fruit flavored chocolates (not healthy)

I can spin but I can't jump.

Spin-offs are divisions of companies or organizations that then become independent businesses with assets, employees, intellectual property, technology, or existing products that are taken from the parent company. Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_spin-off

    $\begingroup$ But they can have different "legs", in the same way they have different "arms". Also the fruit clue makes no sense. $\endgroup$ – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Mar 25 at 1:33
  • $\begingroup$ @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft googling company leg does not provide any results to what you said ... google.com/search?q=company%20leg $\endgroup$ – Nigel Fds Mar 25 at 2:50
  • $\begingroup$ The same is true of googling "company arm"... but both are valid usages. Check definition 7 here $\endgroup$ – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Mar 25 at 3:35
  • $\begingroup$ @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft .. no.7 says: a branch or part of an object or system ... no mention of a company $\endgroup$ – Nigel Fds Mar 25 at 5:14
  • $\begingroup$ wow , downvote? without any proper justification $\endgroup$ – Nigel Fds Mar 25 at 6:20
