Joementum!

Having only been there once, I'm going to assume there's some cultural reason, unknown to me, why this is not insane.

Next year, children in Chiapas will be able to get coffee fortified with iron and folic acid. Working with the local government, Houston-based Voyava Republic and Mexican coffee cooperative La Selva are marketing fortified organic coffee to combat anemia and aid women's health. They plan to hand out the drink to elementary school students.

Chiapas: Home to the least-happy elementary school teachers in the world.

Hey Frank,
It's actually a good (culturally appropriate) idea: poor kids across Mexico are glad to get a before-school cuppa' joe n' a tortilla. It's better than an empty stomach, and it supposedly improves memory by 30%.
