What can be done about the obesity crisis in Ireland, we are already one of the fattest countries in Europe, by 2030 we will be the fattest I seen in some report. Walk around the streets it's obvious Paddy and Mary are packing on the pounds young and old, men and women. Sedentary lifestyles, alcohol, bad diet, unable to cook, parenting many aspects to this. The amount of fat kids waddling round is a sad sight to see.
What can be done? Some suggestions
- Make Home Economics mandatory in schools
- Encourage organic meat and veg, aim to lower prices make it more widespread
- Maybe some nanny state laws, limit on take aways per area , stricter food advertising
Mod Note Keep this on a discussion and not a fat shamming/name calling thread!
