Ban the traffic light labelling system from the front of packaging
I would like the traffic light system which colour codes amounts of fat, sugar and salt, to be banned from food packaging. The option to view nutritional information should still be available on the back of packaging.
I have anorexia and I am currently in recovery. However it can be very damaging to people in my position to stick to recovery when values are so easily displayed on the front of packaging. This can lead to more restrictive behaviour if it is in plain sight. I have found when the calories and the colour rating are not easy to view, it is much easier to continue with a meal plan.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
