One of the biggest concerns for human-health in the 21st century is ever-increasing obesity. Aptly termed an epidemic of 21st-century.Despite years of research and investment in health-promoting programmes, we have failed to slow down the ever-growing epidemic. The truth is – we are leading busy lives and living with personal struggles which are inherently connected to how we choose, buy, prepare and consume foods, often in an unhealthful way, leading to weight-gain and enduring levels of obesity. Our research suggests we need a collective endeavour; where individuals, communities, institutions of all kinds and policymakers must genuinely work together to make meaningful difference.
