One of the effective policies that are effective is that junk foods must be taxed to reduce their consumption. Taxation will make the foods expensive than the nutritious foods. As such, people definitely opt to purchasing nutritious foods, which even if consumed in small quantities, lead to satisfaction. Agreeably, junk foods are cheap to acquire and readily available to the consumers (Matz, 2004). This makes it easy for the low-income earners to acquire them because they cannot afford purchasing nutritious foods. By having the prices of junk foods very high through taxation, positively, obesity will be addressed and decrease at a high percentage of about 15 percent. However, not only should the food be taxed, but also be highly taxed to ensure that the prices rise. However, this will hinder the low earners from purchasing it but for those who can afford, they will continue consuming it.
