At the same time, it is important that neither government nor businesses rely on shame or punitive policies. We need to understand that the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in the last few decades is not the result of individuals’ lack of will, but of a changing food and physical activity environment. Hence, policy efforts should focus on altering the landscape.
