Childhood obesity has become a central concern in many countries and a range of policies have been proposed or implemented to address it‎.‎ This co‎-authored book is the first to focus on the complex set of ethical and policy issues that childhood obesity raises‎.‎ Throughout the book‎,‎ authors Kristin Voigt‎,‎ Stuart G‎.‎ Nicholls‎,‎ and Garrath Williams emphasize that childhood obesity is a multi‎-faceted phenomenon‎,‎ and just one of many issues that parents‎,‎ schools and societies face‎.‎ They argue that it is important to acknowledge the resulting complexities and not to think in terms "single‎-issue" policies‎.‎ After first reviewing some of the factual uncertainties about childhood obesity‎,‎ the authors explore central ethical questions‎.‎ What priority should be given to preventing obesity‎?‎ To what extent are parents responsible‎?‎ How should we think about questions of stigma and inequality‎?‎ In the second part of the book‎,‎ the authors consider key policy issues‎,‎ including the concept of the aobesogenic environment‎,‎a debates about taxation and marketing‎,‎ and the role that schools can play in obesity prevention‎.‎ The authors argue that political debate is needed to decide the importance given to childhood obesity and how to divide responsibilities for action‎.‎ These debates have no simple answers‎.‎ Nonetheless‎,‎ the authors argue that there are reasons for hope‎.‎ There are a wide range of opportunities for action‎.‎ Many of these options also promise wider social benefits‎.‎ "This book provides a welcome re‎-appraisal of commonly‎-held beliefs about child obesity and misconceptions about what needs to be done‎.‎ The authors expose the futility of holding parents responsible for children‎'‎s unhealthy behaviour‎,‎ they challenge the assumption that education and family support will solve the problem‎,‎ and they condemn the prejudice and stigma which surround the narrative of blame‎.‎ The book shows convincingly how the causes of obesity ‎- and the range of associated diseases ‎- lie in the fabric of the modern market economy‎:‎ in the food supply which shapes our diets‎,‎ the social and physical environment which encourages sedentary behaviour‎,‎ and in the media which promote ever greater consumption‎.‎ Obesity is not the problem‎:‎ it is the symptom of a more complex social and economic malaise encouraging poor health‎.‎ The case for interventions by governments to promote health and wellbeing above crude economic growth is comprehensively proven‎.‎" ‎- Dr‎.‎ Tim Lobstein‎,‎ Director of Policy and Programmes‎,‎ The International Association for the Study of Obesity and The International Obesity Task Force A well‎-researched‎,‎ highly critical‎,‎ but carefully balanced examination of everyday assumptions about childhood obesity and its prevention from an intensely moral perspective‎.‎ Although the authors demonstrate that no intervention is without ethical complications or effective entirely on its own‎,‎ they call for immediate actions to reduce the stigma of childhood obesity‎,‎ support parents‎,‎ and create food environments healthier for children‎,‎ adults‎,‎ and the environment‎.‎‎- Marion Nestle‎,‎ Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition‎,‎ Food Studies‎,‎ and Public Health‎,‎ NYU Steinhardt School of Culture‎,‎ Education‎,‎ and Human Development
