The government ratings are a) opt in, and b) terrible.
Many products that are high in sugar but low in fat manage to get through with a decent score. Similarly, products like natural yoghurt, which is great for you for a number of reasons, receives a bad rating.
It is not that difficult to learn to read nutritional information or learn about macronutrients. We should just start teaching this in schools instead of wasting money on flawed ratings systems.
