However, some parents were not surprised.

A mother of one of the children said she had alerted the authorities through a private radio station about the poor quality of food being served at the school.

Mauritius Education Minister Vasant Bunwaree said everything was under control and there was no need to panic. An investigation has been launched into the incident.
