All kids who consumed folic acid pills safe

All 65 children, who had fallen ill after consuming the iron supplement tablets at their school at Didigenahalli near Javagal in the taluk on Tuesday, have recovered.

“Most of the students recovered by 10 pm on Tuesday and were also sent home. The others were discharged on Wednesday,” Nataraju, the   Block  Education Officer said.

The iron and folic acid supplements should be given to students only after food. As the school authorities ad-ministered them at 12 noon, it led to acidity among students, said  Dr Raveesh, the Taluk Health Officer .
