    For Welsh Bacc, I have to come up with a solution for Obesity. Mine is to promote healthy eating on billboards and to stop fast food companies promoting theirs and to also charge fat taxes.

    But, I'm having difficultly stating the pros and cons of both of my solutions and how I can link them to my PESTLE issues. Please help.

    Thanks

    I dont see how you can stop fast food companies from advertising, they are just as entitled to advertise their food than say a vegan >500Kcal per meal superfood restaurant. So i guess legality issues can be a con

    I had to do one a while back, mine was to give obese people who come to GPs free gym memberships.

    Feel free to use mine.

    What's a "fat tax"? Do you weigh people and make them pay money for every lb over their ideal BMI they are?

    Promoting healthy eating never works. Do what they do for smokers and show graphic imagery of the effects of overeating and obesity and that will work a charm.

    Scrap the NHS then we can be as fat as we want and smoke as much as we want without people complaining and trying to control our behaviour.

    Any food tax or ration is obviously going to be resisted by "rights campaigners". Only things gov can do are: stop obesity treatments through NHS, and bring through an education reform that makes kids enjoy PE. Obviously, active parents are more likely to raise active kids so maybe government can bring in an incentive for the amount of time one spends outside with their kids.
