    "great obesity epidemic" is in quotation marks, so just Google it, in quotation marks, and see who used this expression and why.

    Once you've read a newspaper article or two that includes this expression, you'll have all of the information you need to answer this question.

    You can include the search terms, "beliefs," "values," "epidemic," "Australia" and "children" in order to make sure you answer the precise question that you have been asked.

    Since your teacher asks you to explain the problem "briefly," all you need to do is take a look at this by reading a couple of newspaper articles and then report what the newspaper articles have said, mostly in your own words, but maybe including a one-sentence quote from someone who is a professional in the field of "epidemics" should know what they're talking about.
