The French are concerned about the rising rates of obesity in France. The problem isn’t as bad as in the US, but it is a growing concern. It is often blamed on the rise of fast-food and American style eating habits (snacking, large portions).
To try to combat the problem, there is a website that promotes healthy eating and activity called mangerbouger. You can find recipes for healthy foods, information on how much activity a person needs at different stages of life, and download brochures and posters about healthy living.
