Australia’s food & nutrition 2012 – AIHW – 17 July 2012

“Australia’s food & nutrition 2012 highlights the key components of the food and nutrition system. It describes the system from ‘paddock to plate’ and how food choices affect our health and the environment. Did you know:
* Australia produces enough food to feed 60 million people.
* More than 9 in 10 people aged 16 and over do not consume sufficient serves of vegetables.
* One in 4 children have an unhealthy body weight and 6 in 10 adults are overweight or obese.
* Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, rural and remote Australians and socioeconomically disadvantaged people are more at risk of diet-related chronic disease than other Australians.
