Obesity rates among adults have steadily grown in recent decades all the way up to<br/>42.4% in 2018.

People eat these foods at a young age and develop bad eating habits that can<br/>last for the rest of their lives. It is essential to intervene early and help adolescents form<br/>balanced, healthy eating habits before bad habits are already formed.
