An obesity strategy at last ?
Well, possibly. Certainly better than what preceded it. Last month, the UK Government extended its obesity focus from sugar to calories.
The premise is that many adults consume 200-300 calories per day more than they should.
The Food and Drink Federation has welcomed this adoption of its long advocated whole diet approach.
The problem is that the strategy won’t be published until 2018.
It would also be better to see national strategies as part of concerted international action.
