  • Weighing for a nutrition survey

    Posted by Brian Jones

    This is a really typical shot of a child being weighed during a nutrition survey. The scales have been set up in a doorway and the child has been placed in 'weighing pants' which allow him to be hung from the scales. As you can see he is not terribly amused at the indignity of the situation and continued yelling with great gusto for some time after he'd been 'released' :-)
