This article examines the nutritional anthropometry of some Mexico City school children. 556 students, ages seven to fourteen from popular barrios of Mexico City were measured in 1994. The children's diet basically consisted of plentiful tortillas, vegetables, and potatoes. To learn the nutritional state of the children, the following body measurements were considered: height, weight, fatty foods, and body mass.
