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?

Marie-Clare says: Yes-the health star rating is important. It identifies the nutritional value of the food, and identifies major health issues relating to food like fat content, sugar content, salt content and assigns a star rating to guide consumers. I like it and want it branded on all products to fight the growing obesity epidemic which Australia is currently experiencing!
