Chile: A Role Model in Addressing Obesity?

Very interesting article published today in the New York Times about…

…a number of policy-level changes made in Chile, all of which were designed to improve lifestyle behaviors and address obesity in the country.

Lots of familiar issues discussed by academics, industry, and politicians related to the most (likely) ambitious, wide-ranging changes ever proposed at a national level. Healthy environments (home, school, community….country!) are needed to help people and families make healthy lifestyle choices.
