A traffic light rating of 'red' signifies 'high', 'yellow', signifies 'medium' and 'green' signifies 'low' for the amount of salt, sugars and fat in packaged foods.    

This is a good solution to misleading claims about fat free products.   

This application helps consumers make quick and correct purchase decisions about a food product so that  they can avoid products laden with fat, salt and sugar.
