Longer Lunch Periods Mean Fuller Students
How can a longer lunch make you feel more full? This is an article published in the New York Times about how different lunch lengths affect the amount of food consumed by students. It seems relevant because we are currently studying food and nutrients.
After reading this article, I realized how lucky we are to get a 35 minute lunch period at Hillsdale. Do you think that lengthening the time we have for lunch would have an overall good effect on students? Consider not only the implications of being more full, but also being more focused in class. Are the benefits of having a longer lunch period worth staying for a longer time at school to compensate for the lost time?
