Young Pinoys are high consumers of junk food and carbonated drinks

A typical diet of a young Filipino includes instant noodles, chips, grilled street food and carbonated drinks. This was one of the findings of the 2013 Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Study (YAFS 4) conducted by the Demographic Research and Development Foundation (DRDF) and the University of the Philippines Population Institute (UPPI).

This is the fourth time that such survey was conducted and the first time that questions about nutrition were asked of respondents. The study interviewed around 19,000 young Filipinos aged 15-24.
