Food labelling

There have been a few stories in the news recently questioning the way food brands are using the health star ratings found on their products. It would seem that some companies are being quite creative when it comes to their labelling. Are you aware of the government’s health star ratings scheme for food? If so, do you think it’s a good idea and should it be mandatory? Do you make purchase decisions based on how high or low a product’s health star rating is? Would you like to see ratings on more products and do you trust food companies to label their products correctly?

Nikki67 says: I am aware of the star ratings and I think a lot more products should be labelled, especially for those with illnesses to help them buy correctly and not through guessing what is actually in it or where it comes from. A lot of food says its Australian but then in the very fine print you see its actually from overseas, this is totally wrong and should be forbidden on products.
