Cash Calories: Putting moderation into practise in a Fijian setting

Abstract:
As Fiji moves steadily away from traditional food gathering and consumption patterns, towards more sedentary lifestyle habits and highenergy diets, obesity poses an increasing burden on the health system. Currently half of the adult population are classified as overweight (29%) or obese (18%). Both village and workplace settings are frequent venues for over-nutrition due to affordability, buffet style service and cultural traditions concerning food sharing.
