dc.description.abstract Nutritional labelling is playing an increasingly prominent role in the prevention and reduction of diseases related to over-consumption of food. Although an increasing number of food manufacturers are providing nutritional information regarding their products, many consumers cannot use this information effectively or even comprehend it. The needs and objectives of the various groups affected by nutritional labelling illustrate the complex and controversial nature of nutritional labelling and the problem in formulating a simple and easily understood system. A descriptive survey was undertaken to identify the objectives needed for the formulation of an educational programme concerning the nutritional labelling of food containers. The results of the survey suggested a definite need for a nutritional labelling educational programme. Objectives for a nutritional education programme were formulated and recommendations for its implementation were made. The need for the collaboration of the parties involved in order for any significant change in diet to be achieved was stressed. en
