Obesity may rise with price of food

AUSTRALIANS’ health could be put at risk unless the Government keeps fruit and vegetable prices in check amid rising drought pressures, Labor’s health spokeswoman says (www.bordermail.com.au).

Nicola Roxon yesterday warned the drought could worsen the epidemic of childhood obesity.

Australians are bracing for the prospect of significantly higher food prices because water for irrigation in the nation’s food bowl is set to run out.

Ms Roxon said it was important for children to learn healthy eating habits while they were young.
