Guatemala has the sixth highest malnutrition rates in the world, according to UNICEF, the UN children's agency, with 49 per cent of children under five chronically malnourished or stunted.

During a recent visit to Totonicapán, outside Guatemala City, Anthony Lake, UNICEF's Executive Director found that approximately 70% of the children in that community were stunted.

In this report by UNICEF's Thomas Nybo, Anthony Lake says it is not expensive to help communities help themselves and end this problem of malnutrition.
