How many times have you been supermarket shopping and found yourself standing in the aisle, product in hand, trying to understand what the nutritional label is telling you?
There is a really simple solution to better understanding what’s in packaged food - introducing the Traffic Light Labelling system.

How to use:
1.Choose your food product and find the nutrition information label on the back or side of the pack.
2.Look for the per 100g info and enter amounts into the relevant boxes below.
3.You will then be given a traffic light rating for each: red for high, amber for medium or green for low.
4.Click on the individual traffic lights for more info about what each rating means.
Basically, the more green lights, the healthier the choice!
