The data shows that two-thirds of adults in Australia are overweight and the rate of childhood obesity is increasing rapidly. Unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, sedentary and poor social environment all increase the risk of obesity.

This paper has analyzed the purpose, implementation process, and effectiveness of these interventions. Through stakeholder analysis, reasonable recommendations have been made to improve existing interventions, aim to further alleviate the problem of obesity and the high incidence of chronic diseases caused by obesity.
