Review of 'Front of Pack' Nutrition Schemes

13 Feb 2007

Review of current ‘front of pack’ nutrition schemes.

The purpose of this review was to gain insights into the extent to which ‘front of pack’ schemes are used, the way in which such schemes might operate; presentational issues (i.e. the format e.g. traffic lights, descriptive words, symbols); the nutritional criteria used; and whether there has been any developmental research or evaluation.
