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 don't have kids at home any more, so health stars aren't as important to me as they would if I were still buying food for kids. I have noticed though, that a lot of so called "healthy food" for kids is full of sugar, I think this should be prominently displayed on products
