Abstract

Poor diet is a major risk factor for obesity and other chronic disease, contributing to a significant economic and health burden. This thesis investigated how the location, type and mix of food outlets (community food environment) around homes in new residential developments and established neighbourhoods evolved over time within the Perth metropolitan area, Western Australia, and whether changes in the community food environment over time were associated with changes in dietary intake. The findings provide longitudinal evidence to support policy, regulation, urban planning and legislative interventions to develop healthy, equitable community food environments to improve population dietary intake.
