14. How far do you agree or disagree with the following approaches within the strategy?
           
  Prevent people from gaining weight in the first place rather than helping after they become obese          
  Concentrate on all ages of people rather than just a specific age group          
  Target people with the highest need who will benefit most          
  Target unhealthy behaviours that have become a habit          
  Help people take responsibility for making healthier choices for themselves and their families          
  Obesity is everybody's business not just that of traditional health services          
  The same effort must be put into the mental wellbeing side of obesity as it is the physical condition
