I am aware of the governments health star rating scheme for food. I think it is a great idea, it should be mandatory whether it is used by everyone or not. It gives the consumer the choice at least to be more aware of what they are buying and consuming.
I make some purchases based on how low the product star rating is; but not all. It depends on what I am making or eating.
I think there should be ratings on all products. I put my faith that the companies label foods correctly; and I believe they should be fined for misleading information.
This would be beneficial for people with dietary requirements ie; diabetics.
