Obesity is becoming so common that people no longer see it as abnormal or a sign of failing health. Many fear that parents today may outlive their children.

The World Obesity Federation is made up of professional, medical and research communities from over 50 regional and national organisations who are working together to create a global community of organisations dedicated to solving the problem of obesity.

Obesity is a very complex issue that stretches beyond dieting treatments and needs to include action such as supporting families to make healthier choices; working with the food and beverage industry to create healthier foods; addressing accessibility of health, education and physical fitness resources and planning cities that reflect a healthier environment.
