Childhood obesity is also on the rise, with one in five primary school-aged children and one in seven adolescents in Indonesia being overweight or obese, according to the 2018 national Basic Health Research Survey (RISKESDAS). (...) People living in urban areas are more likely to be overweight as access to processed food is easier. City living is also associated with more sedentary lifestyles, especially among women and girls, due to inadequate infrastructure such as narrow pavements and a lack of parks, which limit opportunities for exercising. (...) Cheap and easy access to unhealthy foods, along with exploitative marketing practices and packaging, are directly linked to growing overweight and obesity. Among both adults and children, the intake of ultra-processed foods is strongly associated with being overweight, with soda consumption particularly linked to obesity among adult men.
