The Health Star Rating system Style Guide provides guidance on the application and presentation of the Health Star Rating system graphic on product packaging

The Health Star Rating graphic comprises three principle elements:

  • Health Star Rating
  • Energy declaration
  • Nutrient content declarations

The Style Guide provides examples of how these three elements can be used on food product packages, including specifications for the preferred graphic.

Use of the Style Guide will allow the Health Star Rating system to be implemented consistently. Questions about the use of the Style Guide and the Health Star Rating graphic on food product packaging can be directed to the Front-of-Pack Labelling Secretariat at frontofpack@health.gov.au.
