Chubby little Aussies (well, the whole frightfully fat thing is infectious, apparently, and we probably caught it from America) are feeding themselves less than they feed their gambling habits.
Yes, oddly enough, despite our girth - and despite our by sea girt - Australians spent $91.5 M on food in the last financial year and $148 M on gambling.
That translates to an average of $4350 per person on food and an average of $9491 per person on gambling.
Oops: that should have read "billions" folks, not millions. Gambling might be around $7200K per year, but some sources are quoting higher, perhaps factoring out children under five years, on an assumption they don't yet gamble. I'm just shooting in the dark there, don't quote me, don't call the ABS.
