WE all agree that obesity is a serious issue for Australia across all ages. It is a headline grabber and we see a range of suggestions to 'fix' it being floated on a regular basis.
Obesity is a complex issue, it is not simply solved by eliminating junk food from schools and sporting clubs. There needs to be an holistic solution - one which recognises the multiple factors that come into play. Issues such as education, physical activity, cost and access to nutritious food, lifestyle skills around shopping and cooking healthy food.
