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?

victory says: I watch every label as to the health benefits or not!! My concern is that they are not telling the consumer the truth, I would like to see more of where the product is from, how it is put together and with what is added to the product in larger writing so that it can be read by the consumer. Freshly made is always best but don't always have that choice so why don't they tell us what we are eating, after all the consumer is paying for the product, more ratings and labels,please.
