Call for fast-food chain health ratings

From Nine To Noon, 9:36 am on 28 June 2017

Should fast food giants like Pizza Hut and McDonald's be made to put health star ratings on their food? It's the conclusion of a major new study by Australia's George Institute for Global Health after analysing more than 1,500 products from 13 leading fast food chains. The results revealed that if the labeling system were to be extended to junk food restaurants the average health star rating would be a lowly 2.5 stars. Kathryn Ryan talks to the study's lead author Dr Elizabeth Dunford.
