I'm not discounting the role of the consumer but, when people can barely get by, they don't always have a choice. The Big Mac costs less than a salad so they get what they can afford.

It's been well established that marketing and pricing drive consumer behavior so to put all the blame on the consumer is to ignore the bigger picture (though I think we should blame consumers for falling for marketing). Corporations and politics play a big role in the problem and most definitely could be a major part of the solution – if they wanted to be.
