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?

Dont think they actually have a clue, just promote what they want to sell or have a glut of.

Only need to buy, sugar, tea and other staples. The rest comes fresh from the farm... Always has always will... God willing.....

Have never followed the fads of supermarkets - a big con and waste of time and money ...... how many brands of anything do you need to clutter the store with..... ???

Hate it when I need to take someone, pure torture for me, so glad I got out of the rat race years ago....
