Food labelling will be made consistent across all supermarkets so that shoppers can easily spot the healthiest option, it will be announced today.
The new labelling system will provide consumers with clear information on the content of the food, Health Minister Anna Soubry said.
The new system will include information on guideline daily amounts (GDAs), be colour coded with a traffic light system and use the words "high" "medium" or "low" to inform people about how much fat, saturated fat, salt, sugar and calories are in food products.
