Many studies have related fast food to obesity, a condition of being extremely overweight, which can cause serious health problems such as diabetes, coronary heart disease, breathing problems, and hypertension. With 62.8% of Australians overweight or already obese, the EMMA findings raise concerns over the eating habits of young people and adults alike.
Fortunately, bad eating habits can always be transformed into good ones with the right choices. For younger people, introducing them to healthy and tasty food can begin with family meals at Margaret River cafes, such as The Berry Farm’s Cottage Café. Giving them a taste of country-style lunches can help change their minds about fast food, and walking around the beautiful landscaped gardens and orchards in the fresh air may give them a new appreciation for fresh food and encourage them to try it at home as well.
