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?

Regarding food labels, I sometimes find them hard to understand but then I look at the fat, salt and sugar content and make my decision. The most important thing I look for is, if it is made in Australia. I don't buy from overseas because their food standards are not as high as ours.
