According to the World Obesity Federation, 8.4 percent of children aged five to nine or 670,834 children in Kenya are likely to become obese by the year 2030. WHO has warned that the increase in the number of app-based businesses delivering food to consumers’ doorsteps is contributing to the rise in obesity. The apps are changing the way people eat and many are consuming unhealthy food with little exercise. Meal-delivery apps play a significant role in increasing consumption of high-fat and high-sugar food and drinks. More than 10 food-delivery apps operate in Kenya, with the most popular ones including Uber Eats, Glovo, Jumia Food and Yum Deliveries. The WHO suggests restricting the marketing of unhealthy foods to children, cutting the cost of healthy food and encouraging all ages to exercise more. In the UK, labelling rules have been developed to tackle obesity, including requiring large restaurants and cafes to show calorie information.
