    I did, and it's still the US

    33% of kids in Italy are overweight, (only 1-10 adults) and the figure is 40% in the US

    US

    Child obesity rates are the highest in the OECD, but growth in obesity has slowed down. 40% of American children are currently overweight. Of these, half are obese. Rates have become relatively stable in the last ten years, suggesting that substantial further growth is unlikely and overweight rates in boys might even begin to fall.
