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?

Yes I am aware of the Governments health star rating. Yes I say it should be mandatory. It will assist us on healthy eating. I haven't made decisions based on the health star rating. As I didn't know it started. I would like to see more ratings on more products. And I am hoping companies will be honest with their star ratings. There should be a policy if the companies are not honest. To receive a fine of $5000.
