Obesity specially among children is of great concern now. The government needs to step up efforts on the problem at hand.

I guess boycotting fast food chains will help? :) Seriously the government should invest in information campaigns/drive on healthy eating and it's benefits. Now that would be a solution to minimizing obesity and who knows maybe we can finally prevent it in the future.

I strongly agree. the rates of obese persons have increased compared to the number of obese people during the 20th century.
