Fat lot of good.

Weight-conscious shoppers are being urged to read the small print on foodstuffs (GDN, May 30).

I have tried for a long time to read the small print, and the older I get, the harder it becomes.

Take, for instance, the background colour of the packaging. Black ink on blue or red paper is difficult to read, even after getting the item home.

Having found the magnifying glass, one may then find that the small print is in one of many languages.

In summary, is the small print there to be read - or is it there to ensure that the makers have a get out?
