A tall order


It is hardly one of Latin America’s poorest countries, but according to Unicef almost half of Guatemala’s children are chronically malnourished — the sixth-worst performance in the world. In parts of rural Guatemala, where the population is overwhelmingly of Mayan descent, the incidence of child malnutrition reaches 80%.

Well! It almost makes you wonder why rural Guatemalans aren't eating! What exactly are they growing in that country, if not children?
