The NHS advises: “You have no control over the amount of salt, sugar and fat in processed food but you do have control over what you to choose to buy.
“Reading nutrition labels can help you choose between processed products and keep a check on fat, salt and sugar content.”
Nutritional labels in the UK are colour coded into green, amber and red for different nutritional properties.
Foods containing red in the nutritional labelling are unhealthy, whether they are high in fat, saturated fat, salt or sugar.
