A healthy diet can also help to prevent health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.

It is an amazing guide to eating better The Health Star Rating is a front-of-pack labelling system that rates the overall nutritional profile of packaged food and assigns it a rating from ½ a star to 5 stars. It provides a quick, easy, standard way to compare similar packaged foods. The more stars, the healthier the choice.

As a nation, our waistlines are growing. Today, Australia has one of the highest rates of obesity in the world with 63% of adults and one in four children being overweight or obese (reference: OECD June 2014 and Australian Health Survey 11/12).

Most products carry a Nutrition Information Panel which provides important information about the contents of the food. But as shoppers we are busy, so the Health Star Rating provides an easy way to compare similar packaged food and helps you make healthier choices.

Choosing foods that are higher in positive nutrients and lower in risk nutrients that are linked to obesity and diet-related chronic diseases; (saturated fat, sodium (salt), sugars and energy), will help contribute to a balanced diet and lead to better health.

The Health Star Rating system was developed by the Australian, state and territory governments in collaboration with industry, public health and consumer groups.

The development of the Health Star Rating system has been jointly funded by Australian, state and territory governments. It was implemented from June 2014 on a voluntary basis by the food industry with a review of progress after two years and a formal review at five years.
