From the Paper:

"Coupled with these general results was the finding that dietary intake and physical activity, as well as safety issues, were also facets that were identified by the participants as factors that affected child obesity in that specific community. This also led to discussion within the groups on the ways of decreasing intake while increasing physical activities among children in the community. An interesting point is that while education about obesity and overweight was considered by the groups to be an important facet in reducing overweight, it was also suggested that education alone was not sufficient and that other measures were also necessary."
