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?

helly says: Yes i agree, it should be on a lot more foods. They say children are mostly overweight, especially on muesli bars etc, i think it would help if the children get to learn what it means as well. I also think its more sugar that fat that puts on weight. example sugar in cool drinks, which everybody turns to on a hot day without thinking about it.
