An expert on obesity has said the Healthy Ireland framework needs to be aggressively rolled out to address the obesity crisis in Ireland.
Speaking on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, Professor Donal O'Shea said new World Health Organization figures show that Ireland is on course to be the fattest country in Europe by 2030.
He said action is needed to reverse this trend.
Prof O'Shea, Head of Weight Management Service in St Columcille's and St Vincent's hospitals, said this report has to be seen as a tipping point.
He said the Healthy Ireland 2013-2025 plan is the only way forward but if action is not taken, it's just another document sitting on a shelf.
