The Health Star Rating is a government led initiative that scores the nutritional value of packaged foods. It is designed to help consumers compare foods so they can make healthier choices when shopping within a category.
The health star rating is from ½ star up to 5 stars. The more stars the healthier the choice. Simple.
It takes a little time to change packaging but you’ll soon
start seeing Health Star Ratings on Nestlé products on shelf
at the end of 2014 with more in 2015.
