The Wider Image: Temptation everywhere: Mexican children struggle with obesity
Food that contains approximately 4,100 calories that Perla, 19, used to consume in one day before taking part in a weight loss program, is displayed for a photograph at her family home in Mexico City, Mexico, February 17, 2021. "I never had problems with my appearance, I think my classmates had more problems seeing my weight and my appearance than I did. I didn't care," said Perla. Nutritionist Betzabe Salgado, who works at the Hospital Infantil de Mexico Federico Gomez, where Perla underwent a weight loss program, calculated the calorie amount.
