Food environments are influenced by the marketing of unhealthy products to children, as well as agricultural policies, climatic conditions, cultural and social factors and policies that impact trade. While these roots to obesity rates are complex, addressing obesity is important not only from a food and nutrition perspective, but also as a key strategy for building resilience and preventing future pandemics.
