BBC: "Consultation launched on how to label food"

Link to BBC web site

"Food manufacturers, supermarkets and health experts are to be asked their views on the best way to label the nutritional content of food.

"Julia Waltham, from the British Heart Foundation, said:
"This isn't about telling people what should or shouldn't be in their baskets.

The government should strongly recommend that food companies and supermarkets use a consistent food labelling scheme that includes traffic light colours. They all have a responsibility to provide a system that helps shoppers compare products, and then easily pick the healthiest option if they want to."
