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?

pete 9 says: Yes, food labelling is an area, which does depend of the trust of companies. The label states ingredients and star rating is not necessary on foods which are of vegetable and un sweeten natural fruits, example, all tinned vegetables and most frozen vegetables, generally give you the idea, just what is in the product by ingredients, but the made to meals , I think should definitely be rated, to allow people the choice of eating something which is an alternative to using fresh fruits and vegetables, and to know if the product is even worth reading the ingredients on the label. I am for this idea, with certain products, not all.
