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?

mymonkey says: I heard a while ago that companies were paying each other to rate their products of adding stars to make their products seem healthy or paying to put the heart tick to say their product is good for health. I wouldn't be surprised as you cant trust these companies, all they want is your money and don't really care about your health..
