Abstract

The previously described survey of food-purchasing behaviour in a central-Australian Aboriginal community demonstrated that children have sufficient disposable income to provision themselves directly from food outlets. Subsequently, a community-based intervention project developed strategies to provide healthier choices for these children. Two years after the initial survey, a follow-up survey was conducted in which all food purchases by children under the age of 15 in the community were recorded over a two-week period. The results demonstrate an improvement in the quality of foods and beverages purchased by children at the time of the second survey.
