The Health of People of NSW: Report of the Chief Health Officer series has been produced regularly since 1996 and is a flagship publication of the NSW Ministry of Health. The report adopts an equity lens to review health disparities across demographic groups such as age, sex, Aboriginality, socioeconomic status and remoteness.
Using 2016 data for children aged 2-15 years from the NSW Population Health Survey, the 2017 report focuses on what children eat and drink. It highlights trends in the consumption of fruits and vegetables, discretionary foods such as takeaway foods and unhealthy snacks, water, milk, and sweetened drinks.
Further information on the health of children and the NSW population can be found on HealthStats NSW.
