According to the latest report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australians are consuming fewer fruits and vegetables and reducing their intake of milk.

The latest report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicates a decline in the consumption of all major food groups, particularly vegetables, fruits, and milk products. In 2022-23, a total of 14.8 million tonnes of food and non-alcoholic beverages were sold across Australia, marking a decrease of 1.9 percent compared to the previous year. The ABS report focuses on “apparent consumption,” which accounts for food and non-alcoholic beverages purchased from supermarkets and smaller food retail outlets. Notably, it excludes purchases from fast food outlets, cafes, restaurants, or institutions utilizing catering services from non-supermarket sources. Additionally, food obtained through home growing, foraging, hunting, or fishing is not included in the report’s findings.
