Mexico Puts Its Children on a Diet

Mexico's children are among the world's fattest, with one in three children overweight or obese.  Last year the country's education and health officials attempted to limit what schools could sell at recess, but snack food companies fought back through the Ministry of the Economy.  Nevertheless, the new rules have removed 90 percent of fried foods and all soft drinks from elementary schools.  Mexican schools do not serve lunch.
