Do you check health star ratings on food products before buying them?

There are mounting calls for Health Star ratings to be made mandatory on all packaged foods.

It comes amid revelations companies are choosing not to display the star guide on unhealthy food products.

With most of these products have scored at the upper end of the five-star scale, public health experts are concerned some producers are manipulating the system by exploiting loopholes around sugar, salt and fat content.

Experts advise Australia to learn from Canada and France, where labels are required to be a uniform position, size and colour to enhance visibility for consumers.
