Choice is demanding an overhaul of Australia’s much-maligned food star rating system, arguing it is misleading people about added sugar in products like Nutri-Grain and Milo cereals.

Both foods are currently rated as four out of five stars for nutrition — despite containing 11g and 15g of sugar per 30g serve respectively.
