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?

Luvmydogs says: It's not just the sugar & salt content that people need to be aware of when looking at the product contents. You should also look at the fat content - this is important for diabetics as well - & ensure that the total fat content is less than 10%. It's not hard to do & as has been said, you get to know the products that are suitable & they're the ones you buy. You only need to check something that is new really, don't you?
