How children use meal-delivery apps and the rising popularity of online gaming could be driving obesity across Europe, the World Health Organization has said.

No European country is on track to stop obesity rising by 2025, the WHO says.

Nearly 60% of adults and a third of children are overweight or obese – and the Covid pandemic has made that worse.

It suggests restricting the marketing of unhealthy foods to children, cutting the cost of healthy food and encouraging all ages to exercise more.
