traffic light labelling

The green dot is in addition to our traffic light labelling system, which provides key nutritional infomation at a glance. We use traffic light colours to indicate levels of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt in a particular product, to help you get a better balance.

high

Red means High indicating the food is high in fat, sugars or salt. It's fine to eat occasionally or as a treat, but think about how often you choose it and how much of it you eat.

 
medium

Amber means Medium, making it an OK choice. Although going green is even better.

Green means it's Low which makes it a healthier option.
