The Department recognises the stigma associated with living with overweight and obesity. Our focus is on tackling the causes of obesity, improving diets and preventing ill health. We have been careful to consider the views of mental health charities and experts as we developed our plans for implementing the obesity strategy and we will continue to listen going forwards.
