9 things NZ must do to tackle the child obesity crisis

A panel of 71 independent and government experts have undertaken an evaluation of New Zealand Government food environment policies, compared to international best practice.

This is the second such evaluation, the first being in 2014.  In this blog Dr’s Stefanic Vandevijvere and Body Swinburn summarise the findings.

There are some areas where New Zealand is at the level of best practice and there are some areas where there is progress compared to 2014.

However, there remain major implementation gaps, especially for policies to improve the healthiness of food environments, to catch up with other nations globally in tackling the child obesity crisis.

As New Zealander’s go into the election it is important that we do understand the main health issues and ask all political parties what they plan to do to improve child health.
