  • School Neighborhood Food Environments in Greater Tunis: Predominance of Unhealthy Food Retailers and Food Advertisements ​

    Childhood overweight and obesity have dramatically increased over the past decades. School neighborhood food environments have been shown to influence children's weight status. However, scarce evidence on food environments exists in low and middle- income countries (LMICs). ​​​​​We thus aimed to describe the school neighborhood food environments in Greater Tunis, in Tunisia – an LMIC of the Middle East and North Africa region which is experiencing a rapid nutrition transition. ​
