SNACKIN’

Should snacks be allowed in school?

Do you think kids should have snacks in school? Are kids paying attention to the lesson or are they paying attention to the clock? Do kids get enough breakfast, or any at all in the morning? I’ll answer these questions in the few paragraphs.

     Have you ever been in a rush to get to school? You didn’t have the time to eat breakfast? Well good news, you’re not alone. Coming to school hungry has many problems. You can’t concentrate during class because your stomach is rumbling, and you keep counting down the minutes until the next class. Closer and closer to lunch, you don’t pay attention because you are hungry and can’t wait to eat. This is an issue, because you are paying more attention to how hungry you are, and not about the lesson you are learning during class.

     It is proven that a student who has not eaten is more likely to not succeed as well as a student that has eaten. In the morning, to be at school on time, a lot of students skip breakfast and usually starve until they reach their lunch period. Letting students have a snack during class is a good idea, to help them concentrate so they are not hungry or counting down the minutes until lunch. Snacking is important for children because they have smaller stomachs than adults and cannot necessarily stay full in one meal or sitting. They should be able to snack every three to four hours over the course of the day.

     What time should kids have snacks during school? What kinds of snacks should they be allowed to eat? Let’s find out. I personally think kids should be able to have snacks depending on when they go to lunch. If you went to lunch at 12:50 then you should be able to eat snacks anywhere from 9:00 to 12:50. You should make sure with your teacher that you are able to snack on something at that time.

     Different people have different taste buds and they should be able to bring their snack that they want. Sure, some people have allergies and the school should announce what kinds of snacks your not allowed to bring because of people’s allergies. Also kids should bring healthier snacks. Some healthy snacks are chips, grapes, granola bars, and apple sauce. My conclusion is that kids should have snacks during school and bring what they want.
