Food labels can be confusing, but can be a useful way of working out how much salt the food contains. Make a habit of looking at the food labels before you decide to buy or eat something.
Some food labels use the traffic light system to help us make healthier choices. The traffic light system gives information on salt as well as fat, sugar and calories, labelling for high, for medium and for low content. Choosing foods with more green and amber than reds, helps us make healthier choices.
