Reading Food Labels Gets Easier

Food health rating programs aim to help grocery buyers make better choices.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking for a quick trip through the grocery store, these food rating programs can help you make better choices. But experts warn that you still need to look at labels and consider foods within the context of your whole diet to make wise decisions.

"I applaud all of the food companies, grocery stores, and rating programs that help consumers select healthier products, but consumers still need to put the information into context of a healthy diet," says McDonald.
