A traffic light food labelling system is being brought in by all the major supermarkets from today. The colour will signal products that are high in fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt.
Red warning logos will appear on food considered ‘bad’ for health under a new traffic light labelling scheme.
Amber and Green will indicate foods deemed ‘medium’ or ‘good’ in terms of health value.
The amount of fat, saturated fat, salt and sugar will be presented as Reference Intakes - formerly known as Guideline Daily Amounts .
These will show how much of the maximum daily intake a portion accounts for.
