This not only affects the country’s medical system but also the quality of life of these future generations and, in the end, the future of the country. Governments must work to find a solution. The U.K.’s experience, offering economic incentives that encourage families, schools and the food industry to provide children with healthier choices, can be used as a source of inspiration for other societies facing the same challenge.
