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?

Stormed says: I don't take any notice of the star rating, after the fiasco with the heart tick where if you paid enough you got one, eg McDonalds fake food, I don't see how this one will be any different. If you read the labels and take note, particularly of sugar content, including all different types of sugar, and salt content, you can use your common sense to see what is good and what isn't.
