The FOPH actively encourages a balanced diet and physical activity to prevent ill-health. It therefore works with partners in related areas. For example, it is helping to develop strategies to counteract obesity and prevent people becoming overweight. It works together with the Federal Committee on Nutrition to draw up recommendations and develop a national strategy on diet and physical activity.
