Claudia Vega (Mexico) is a Pediatrician, Nutritionist and Psychotherapist. She specializes in working with children, teenagers and adults who have eating and weight issues. Claudia also works in the prevention of eating disorders by raising awareness about the risk factors, such as body dissatisfaction, a low self-esteem–based on appearance, dieting, negative body talk (among children and/or their parents) and also by increasing positive attitudes such as a non-appearance oriented self-concept, and replacing restrictive dieting with a more balanced and mindful relationship with food. For such purpose she gives lectures and Mindful Eating workshops to pre-teens, teenagers and their parents.
