Mexico Information

Mexico is said to have the highest rate of childhood obesity in the world. There are many factors that contribute to the problem that are universal in nature. However, some of these causes may be considered to be culturally and uniquely Mexican in origin and in their perpetuation.

Twice a year, in the spring and in late fall/early winter, throughout much of Mexico, a popular, delicious, healthy, and nutritious snack is available, fresh garbanzo beans. While most of the people in my town of Churintzio, Michoacan consume them raw, they are also eaten steamed or dry roasted.
