In this study, the authors investigated the availability and price of healthier foods-vs-regular counterparts and their links with obesity. A cross-sectional survey of weight and height among Māori in urban and rural areas was undertaken, and the availability of 'healthier' foods in fast-food-outlets and supermarkets was examined. The findings of the study led to support for "the argument to regulate the availability and price of sugar-sweetened-beverages in NZ" and the "positive association of the availability of trim milk with the prevalence of obesity warrants investigation into individual's dietary and food-purchase behaviour."
