After many kids at a childcare facility in Queensland were exposed to an "unknown substance" in their lunch, paramedics had to treat them.

At around 12.30 p.m. on Thursday, Queensland Ambulance Service was called to Milestones Early Learning Center in Keperra, in Brisbane's northwest, where a number of kids were experiencing a variety of symptoms after eating lunch.

This afternoon, the childcare center apparently informed parents of what transpired through text messages and letters.

According to the Courier Mail, the letter, which News Corp got, said that "all children" had been exposed to an "unknown substance in their lunch" and were experiencing "minor reactions."

"Redness to face and body, swelling to lips and face, irritation/ agitation," were a few of the reactions listed in the letter, New York Post reported.

"The chances of a delayed onset of symptoms are rare," it continued.

"If your child develops any of these symptoms, don't panic."

A text message was sent to parents just before 2 p.m. asking for them to arrange for their children to be picked up "as soon as possible."

"Several children have presented with an unknown skin rash," the message read.

"Medical advice is being strictly followed including advice to families to pick up children."

According to a QAS representative, there were no patients who needed to be transported to a hospital.

Others sought out personal medical advice.

All of the kids were in good health.
