At least 100 children have been admitted to different hospitals in Agra after eating mid-day meal served at a government school on Wednesday.

Several cases of mid-day meal food poisoning surface in India every year.

At least 82 children had fallen ill after consuming the mid-day meal served at government primary school in Chinhat area of Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow city on 2 September. District Magistrate had asked the food safety department to test the food samples.

In a similar incident in Madhya Pradesh last month, at least 52 children fell unconscious after eating the mid-day meal served at a government school in Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh. Students were saved in both the cases.

The government schools across India offer free meal to students everyday under the mid-day meal scheme. The government has time and again faced backlash as cases of food poisoning continue to surface.
