Low income earners and food

by Hollingworth, Peter, 1935- | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 1988Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The existence of deficient food and dietary patterns amongst low income Australians in the Bicentennial year is in itself a timely reminder that the problems of nutrition and ill-health are not simply the problems of over-abundance, over-eating and wrung dietary choices. Some 20 per cent of our national population have insufficient incomes which mean they cannot afford proper food and therefore do not possess the range of consumer choices as is commonly, but mistakenly, assumed. The poor spend 23.4 per cent of their low incomes on food, compared with 17.9 per cent for the top ten per cent of the income group and 19.7 per cent for the average of the total population. But it is also true that, for the poor, the payment of rent and fuel bills always takes precedence, so that, family food expenditure is frequently cut to cover those costs and the family is given high carbohydrate "fillers". Furthermore, many poor people do not possess the knowledge, skill, resources, time or ease of access to buy and cook food which is both cheap, enjoyable and nutritious. Care must therefore be taken to ensure that our new found enthusiasm for healthy food does not lead to victim blaming, nor the rehearsing of earlier arguments that the poor can survive well on "porridge and carrots".
