Nine nursery school pupils aged 3 to 6 were fed bread and water after their parents forgot to pay for their monthly lunch fee in the village of Maincy, Seine-et-Marne.

Nine nursery school pupils aged 3 to 6 were fed bread and water after their parents forgot to pay for their monthly lunch fee in the village of Maincy, Seine-et-Marne.  

The town hall, which oversees lunches for all public schools,  says this was the result of  "late payments" since monthly lunches are due to be paid at the begining of the month.

Parents such as Magalie Diez, who is a member of a parent s'  association, wonder if the second of April constitutes late payment and if another solution could have been found with a bit of good will.

Several parents also complained that the children who did not get a proper lunch were  taken aside and told that they should reprimand their parents for their forgetfulness.
