    Studies have rather consistently shown that students consume their school lunches in 7 to 10 minutes. I suppose that is why the schools feel short lunch periods are okay.

    I can provide links to these studies later, and links to other studies that show how nutrition can suffer when students are given only a short time for lunch - but this is straying a bit from what we are guessing are the concerns of the original poster.

    To make up for short lunches, most of the teachers in the schools in my area allow students to bring "nutritious snacks" into the classroom.

    Thanks, HRZ. I'm glad you asked (SOMEONE had to - obviously the hints weren't making it through to the OP) but if something can't be done to stop the spamming, the world (and the OP) may never know...


    Two things I am tired of typing: 1.) A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means that you were fired for a reason prohibited by law. 2.) The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding contract or CBA expressly says otherwise. If it does, the terms of the contract apply.

    I fear the original poster may not return to let us know what concerns him/her - or perhaps the original poster read the responses and we managed to hit on the answer that was sought.

For some, they will not eat again until we serve breakfast again in the morning.
    My high school freshman son gets about 30 minutes for lunch. And our school district is one of the best in Ohio. He had 25 minutes for lunch in middle school.

    That sounds more reasonable, especially when you consider cafeteria lines can move slow and kids often need to use restrooms during their lunch periods.

    And with less time to eat, kids often wind up tossing good food in the trash.

    That said, my kids DO pretty much inhale their food.
