Attention dear contributors,
We are reaching the end of the online discussion, so please all the people that want to make any final comments or thoughts... now is time!
First of all I want to thanks you for all the comments, suggestions and ideas; those are very valuable and useful for our study.
Most of the comments are more related with health, nutrition, education and economic policy; which are fundamental in the fight against obesity. Also some contributors have made some comments relative to the role of the farmers in the context of having a supply of healthy food. I think that in order to address this epidemic we need to have a policy that covers an inclusive and efficient food system, from supply to demand. So, as a moderator I would like to know if someone knows successful programs or policies where the farmers were included as part of short marketing circuits. Additionally another related intervention with supply of healthy food is the case of urban community or school farms or gardens; anyone knows successful experiences in this area?
Thanks again for all the contributions.
Keep posting please!
The fight against obesity is a long run goal, but we need to start now!
