During the hour-long episode, Michael looked at how past government policies had failed and whether future initiatives can have the desired impact given the amount of money being poured into promoting fast food brands.

He also visited a new preschool obesity clinic that treats children as young as one year old.

However, many viewers were upset that Michael pointed the finger at everyone but the individual.

Taking to Twitter, a viewer wrote: “Michael Mosley blames the obesity crisis on corporations, advertisers, government etc. It’s like he’s never heard of the concept of ‘personal responsibility’ #whomadebritainfat.”

I'm a nutritionist and these are the unhealthiest frozen foods
What is the obesity crisis and how does alcohol affect our weight?

Another added: “So you listed: supermarkets, food companies, the government.

“As people who should be blamed for the obesity problems in the country. What about individual responsibility?
@DrMichaelMosley.”

A third tweeted: “‘What’s stopping the government from stopping the obesity crisis?’ Good question, BUT, doesn’t the ultimate responsibility lie with the individual or the parents? #whomadebritainfat.”

Meanwhile, a fourth shared: “Parents not politicians #raisingyourkids #werbritainfat #allgotthesamebones.”

As a result, Michael also met with Jamie Oliver, who has led numerous campaigns around healthy eating, school lunches and child nutrition.

He also discussed with ex-Chancellor George Osborne why the sugar tax does not go far enough.
