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?

We try to avoid packaged food altogether and eat mainly fruits, vegetables, fresh legumes, fresh eggs and meat. If we do purchase packaged foods I try to find the ones with the least ingredients. I am not aware of the governments health star ratings scheme for food.
