Swiss teens tend to be more content with life than their European peers.
That’s according to a review of 200,000 kids by the World Health Organization, evaluating different health aspects for 11, 13 and 15-year-olds.
Swiss 11-year-olds, for example, tended to be slimmer than their peers, with just 5 percent being overweight, compared to 20 percent of Portuguese 11-year-olds.
The Swiss also tend to brush their teeth more regularly and eat fruit.
But the Swiss seemed less likely to move.
The survey found only 11 percent of Swiss teen girls, and 20 percent of the boys would exercise or do sports at least one hour a day.
