A government task force in the UK has recommended that all new government policies include an "obesity test" to determine how the policy will affect weight and obesity.
In the US, all new "economically significant" regulations already have to undergo a cost-benefit analysis. Wouldn't a good cost-benefit analysis already incorporate effects on weight if they have substantive health and thus economic impacts? Moreover, if you've ever read the federal cost-benefit analyses that are often conducted (as I have done), you'll see many of them are are based on some questionable methods or heroic assumptions. Are we to believe that new obesity-impacts analyses will be better and more informative than present cost-benefit analyses?
In any event, here are the rest of the group's recommendations (I'd like to see a cost-benefit analysis on each of them):
