Multiple public health and health policy efforts have been credited for a decreased prevalence in obesity, per NHANES in younger children. Some examples include changes to school assisted breakfast and lunch programs (increasing vegetable, fruit and whole grain offerings), changes to WIC and SNAP packages, city-wide changes to increase neighborhood walkability, to provide taxes on sugar sweetened beverages.
Do the panelists believe these types of interventions are enough to prevent the steep curves seen during ages 5 to 10 year and 20 to 25 years from the Fig 3?
