"Statistics for the African island of Mauritius, located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator in the Indian Ocean, reveal a robust 2 936 caloric intake per capita. Its 1.3 million inhabitants average a life expectancy of 73 years, in line with many first world countries. The small island has US$372 million in agriculture exports, indicating a steady livelihood based on crops and fisheries. Despite these positive indicators, 15 percent of the children on Mauritius suffer from malnutrition and are underweight, while ten percent experience stunted growth."
