    Haw hum, diddly oh. Same old stuff, nothing changes, except for continually rising obesity. This govt had sabotaged a simple scheme to indentify best food choices on the front of the packet. Yes, industry was NOT happy! Even that, in isolation may be insufficient for many - after all physical activity counts too and emotions can drive eating - too much 'good' food will accrue weight.

    The links quoted are reasonable except for Life Clinic. Unfortunately much information is in my view poorly presented and a poor educational tools eg Nutrition Aus pocket guide to food Choices is bare bones with no examples or a wider explanation. There can be unholy alliances between business and health eg NHF and Kellogs, Nutrition Aus and Wollies - products recommended should be better than average but not necessarily suitable for You.

    If confused, don't forget, there are free sources of advice. On line NSW Health offers health coaching (http://www.gethealthynsw.com.au/) - check it for your state. The My Fitness Pal website may be OK from my quick glance. Many public services have free services like dietitians. Do get some support if you feel like stuck in the mud.

    Really Kopernicus, are you saying that most people are too stupid to work out that anything in a brightly coloured box or packet or something highly processed is likely to be less healthy than something in its natural state? Why blame the Government? Putting nutritional values on the menu board at McDonalds did not stop people buying burgers and chips. People have to take responsibility for what they put in their mouths.

    Of course, these are not the 5 best websites, it depends on your exact need.
    UK's http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/Pages/Livewellhub.aspx or our NHF sites http://www.heartfoundation.org.au/healthy-eating/Pages/default.aspx are 2 to check out for a start.
