CCK Recommendation

Conference recognises that there is much poorer access to affordable and healthy food in rural and remote areas, and that far too many children nationally go to bed hungry at night, especially children in rural and remote areas and especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. These dietary issues have strong negative influences on child development and rates of chronic disease in adulthood. Conference calls for a high profile inquiry into the supply chain as it impacts the cost of healthy food in rural and remote Australia and including consideration of other measures including excise on unhealthy foods.
