Cheap, easy junk food Dympna Leonard, Senior Lecturer at James Cook University, who worked on the project said that, “no supplement is ever going to be a substitute for healthy food, but the Sprinkles can enhance a child’s diet during a short period when nutrient requirements are particularly high.” Poor nutrition amongst children typically reflects poor diet and health across the wider community, “as well as impacting on children’s health, iron deficiency and anaemia can have long lasting detrimental effects on children’s educational attainment,” Ms Leonard said. “Prevention and intervention needs to start earlier, ideally before a woman becomes pregnant,” she said. “What we are finding in these remote Indigenous communities is the end point of the loss of their land and loss of their traditional food supply, meaning people now depend on what they can buy at their local food store, on a low income.” “The supply of healthy food to these remote communities has improved, but at the same time, the supply of junk food has also become more readily available and it is cheap, relative to more nutritious food,” Ms Leonard said. Endemic problem Associate Professor Kate Senior, anthropologist at the Menzies School of Health Research and a co-author of the report, said training the community workers allowed them to continue the job beyond the life of the project. “Young women are now empowered to have conversations about these enduring problems in their communities,” she said.
