Traffic Light Labelling
What is traffic light labelling?
Many food labels now have traffic light labelling to inform the comsumer on how much fat, saturated fat, salt and sugar is in that food (the things we should keep an eye on). This system is not a legal requirement - it is there to try and help consumers make healthier choices when buying food products. You are able to quickly tell the healthy choices from the not so healthy ones.
- a RED light means that the product is not so good and you should eat it rarely.
- an AMBER light means that the product is ok but you should only eat it every now and then.
- a GREEN light means that the food product is good, you should be eating these most of the time.
