Question

The weight-loss company Weight Watchers has recently been criticised for releasing an app targeted children

aged 8 to 17, in which children can set eating 'goals' and monitor which foods they eat to achieve these goals. Children can also 'upgrade' to a paid plan with a virtual eating 'coach'. While Weight Watchers claim the app encourages healthy eating, parent groups are concerned it may encourage eating disorders. Critically evaluate the ethics of Weight Watchers releasing this app. Begin by distinguishing the main ways of apportioning responsibility for the harms a product may cause. Identify which form of responsibility is most appropriate in this case, and why. Then, using at least two ethics theories, consider the main ethical arguments for and against Weight Watcher releasing this app.
