Follow the Stars to
Better Nutrition

Our Guiding Stars nutrition guidance program makes it easy to choose more nutritional options for you and your family! How? By rating the nutritional quality of food using info from a product’s Nutrition Facts and list of ingredients. For example, a bag of Nature’s Place green peas will have 3 Guiding Stars indicating the BEST nutritional value, while a can of Nature’s Place organic supersweet corn will have 1 Guiding Star indicating GOOD nutritional value.

HOW IT WORKS

Foods that are more nutritious are marked with easy-to-follow tags indicating the amount of stars – the more nutritional value a food has, the more Guiding Stars it receives.

Guiding Stars isn’t trying to tell you what to buy; it simply points you toward foods that have more vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids. These foods will also have less saturated and trans fats, added sugar and sodium as well as artificial colors/dyes.
