Woolworths the Fat Food People  
Woolies is running a competition to win a home entertainment package, and to enter all you have to do is buy any three eligible products from participating brands in a single transaction. Looking through their catalogue to find the eligbile products, I found icecreams, Skittles, kid-size packets of chips, adult-size packets of chips, popcorn, potato chip multi-packs, Coke, Doritos, Smiths Chips, Mother, lemonade, marshmallows, chocolate, Cherry Ripes and Turkish delight, soft drink mixers, Lindt chocolate, Tim Tams, Loacker chocolate biscuits.... I think you're getting the picture. Also Moccona coffee, home brand soup, tacos and pot noodles.
And they call themselves the fresh food supermarket! No wonder Australia is ranked third in the world in obesity stakes.

Ugh, wow. I think we are ahead of you in the obesity stakes, but looking at that list, I have to wonder how!

Seriously, my experience of Australia was that it was a lot more sporty and active than Britain. Has that changed in recent years?

We get a lot more sunshine and good weather, so people are outdoors more, but I don't know how we compare on the sporty/ active scale.
