Chance to have say on food labels

South Western Times

Bunbury residents wanting to provide input on the national Health Star Rating system have just two weeks to have their say.

The system is a voluntary front-of-pack labelling scheme intended to help consumers make healthier dietary choices by rating the overall nutritional profile of packaged food and assigning it a rating from half a star to five stars.

People can lodge their public submissions at consultations.health.gov.au by August 17.
