Campaign against "Obesity Epidemic"

Published tisdag 8 maj 2012 kl 12.28

Swedish Social Welfare Minister Göran Hägglund is launching a campaign against what he calls the “Obesity Epidemic”.

The newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that later this year Hägglund will be calling representatives from the government, the healthcare, food and building sectors, local authorities, and non-profit organizations for talks on what can be done about the problem here.

Hägglund is calling for more bicycle paths, fruit and vegetables next to supermarket check-outs instead of candy, and other measures to improve health.

Dagens Nyheter says the idea comes from Britain, where the government has started a national health campaign.
