What is the 4 and 5 star rating that I see on your packaging?

The Australian Health Star rating helps you to make healthier food choices when shopping for packaged food products. Most products carry a Nutrition Information Panel at the back of the pack 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 to make healthier choices. The Health Star Rating system was developed by the Australian, state and territory governments in collaboration with industry, public health and consumer groups.
Under the system, packaged foods are given a star rating based on their nutritional profile. This includes:
• Energy (kilojoules).
• Risk nutrients - saturated fat, sodium (salt) and sugars.
• Positive nutrients - dietary fibre, protein and the proportion of fruit, vegetable, nut and legume content.
Health Star ratings on products range from ½ star to 5 stars. So that you can easily compare similar packaged foods, the more stars means the healthier the choice. At Go! Kidz we are proud to produce a range of meals with a 4 star rating and above.
