Brazil: from child hunger to obesity

Thirty years ago, malnutrition and a lack of basic childcare meant infant mortality rates were high in Brazil – 8.3% in 1980. But while hunger now only affects 6.9% of the population, this doesn't mean they're healthy. Far from it, in fact: 51% of the country is overweight.
