SYDNEY - Australia's poorest families are struggling to afford healthy food, a new study revealed on Wednesday.

The research, conducted by Curtin University in Western Australia, showed that in some instances, those on welfare had to fork out 50 percent of their budget in order to eat healthily.

"We looked at the cost of food in Western Australia and we measured 430 foods that would make up a reasonably healthy food basket," said co-author Doctor Christina Pollard.
