The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified three out of every ten children under the age of five in Libya as overweight.

Libya topped the list of the top ten in terms of overweight children in 2022, which the WHO attributed to an “unhealthy diet.”

According to the global analysis of statistics by the WHO for 2022, 28.7% of Libyan children under the age of five are overweight, warning that obesity is "going in the wrong direction, and shows no immediate sign of abating."

198 countries were tracked in the study.
