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?

I do not see any issues in government regulation to make it mandatory, but will be happy if the products have been certified correctly by appropriate certified companies to test those products and approve the correct rating star on the products. I sometimes decide to purchase the products based on the health star rating.
I would not trust the food companies to label the products correctly but would trust if a certified company can approve it.
