dc.description.abstract The National Agreement for Healthy Nutrition (ANSA) in Mexico (2010) led to initiatives such as banning sodas and regulating unhealthy food in schools, as well as design of other initiatives, such as a front-of-package labeling system. A main challenge of the ANSA has been lack of harmonization between industry interests and public health objectives and effective accountability mechanisms to assess implementation across government sectors. Some recommendations for effective obesity prevention policy are summarized. As Mexico leads in global consumption of sugar sweetened beverages (SSBs), the introduction of potable water in schools and poor communities is a logical intervention. en
