Guiding Stars

Guiding Stars... as easy as 1, 2, 3

Guiding Stars is an objective, evidence-based, nutrition guidance program. The system rates foods as good, better or best to give consumers at-a-glance advice; the more stars a food earns, the more nutritious it is.

What is Guiding Stars?

Guiding Stars helps consumers quickly navigate to foods with the most nutritional value. Products are assigned 1, 2, or 3 Stars, based on their nutritional content. A higher Star rating means the item contains more beneficial nutrients overall, and has fewer nutrients that are best to avoid. With over 100,000 rated foods, making nutritious choices for you and your family is now simpler than ever.
