New Zealand’s adults. The New Zealand Ministry of Health Survey of 2016/17 found that 34% of adults (aged 15 and over) are overweight (BMI between 25.0 and 29.9), with a further 1.2 million people (32%) being obese (BMI over 30.0), up from 29% in 2011/12.
People living in lower socio-economic areas have three times the number of fast food and takeaway outlets around them than those in less deprived areas.
New Zealand has cemented its status as one of the fattest countries in the world.New Zealand is the third fattest nation in the world, yet we are still bombarding people, children in particular, with unhealthy foods.
Almost 1 in 3 adult New Zealanders and 1 in 10 children are obese. A further 35 per cent of adults are overweight.”People choose their diets from the food environments around them and when these are dominated by unhealthy foods and drinks, it is no surprise that our overall diets are unhealthy and our obesity rates are so high,” (University of Auckland Professor Boyd Swinburn)
