Abstract

The nutritional situation of Latin America is changing rapidly from one characterized by underweight and stunting to one where chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes are increasingly prevalent. In Chile, under-nutrition has virtually disappeared, but rising obesity rates and risk factors for chronic diseases indicate the need to modify existing programs and emphasize prevention of diet-related chronic diseases.
