The NuVal Scores are the new simple guide to nutritional values of everyday foods...The Scores (http://www.nuval.com/pages/WhatAreScores.aspx - broken link)

A very clear and simple scoring system, giving points out of 100 for each individual food. The system will eventually cover all food products.

"Shoppers will begin to see NuVal™ Scores in supermarket aisles this fall. NuVal Scores will be displayed right at the point of purchase – on shelf tags, aisle signage, and other communications. At a glance, you’ll be able to see and compare the nutritional value of products as part of your regular shopping routine"

It will drive up the prices. Nutrition costs money, which is why there is so little nutrition in food. If you force up the quality of the food, you will force up the price, and producers making "popular priced" food will fall by teh wayside.

This is being done to help the low-income shoppers, but driving up the prices does not help them at all.

Compare it with public transportation The cost of public transport is unaffordable in this country, because we have forced high standards of comfort and safety onto the travelers. There is no low-cost alternative.
