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?

mazzab says: I have read all of the comments on here so far and totally agree with the majority of them. The "Star Rating" is an total waste of time and taxpayers money. I too, like a lot of others her rating" e, look at sugar, salt and fat content, as well as country of origin. I make my decision on those things and not some ridiculous "star rating" put forward by someone wo fancies themselves to be an expert.. Save the money and put it to better use in health and education.
