The Wider Image: Temptation everywhere: Mexican children struggle with obesity
Food, that contains approximately 6,600 calories that Helen, 12, used to consume in one day before taking part in a weight loss program, is displayed for a photograph at her family home in Toluca, Mexico, February 1, 2021. "I was overweight for my age and my parents got very worried. They took me to the hospital for a weight loss program and I was taught how to eat well and healthy. I used to eat a lot of sweets and junk food. Now I eat a lot healthier. My weight at the beginning of the program was 98 kg and I hope to reach my normal weight of 60/65 kg," said Helen. Nutritionist Betzabe Salgado, who works at the Hospital Infantil de Mexico Federico Gomez, where Helen underwent a weight loss program, calculated the calorie amount.
