Schools should have snacks often rather than one lunch.

It's been scientifically proven that having multiple, small, meals six to seven times daily allows your body to more easily metabolize food thus allowing students to have more nutrients that a growing child/teen needs to support not only a healthy body, but mind as well.

Last time i listen to my health teacher, anyhow, i become hungry before and a few hours after lunch and that tends to impede my focus. At the very least, snacks would be able to keep a student from feeling hungry during the school-day so they could focus more on tasks.

Haha yeah, my PE teacher said the same sort of things back when I was in high school.
Always question everything. Don't take what your health teacher says to you as fact. There's a saying that goes, "people who can't do, teach; people who can't teach, teach phys. ed."

The best suggestion I could give you is to always have a big breakfast if you feel hungry in the morning, and pack a big lunch. Foods with high protein actually extend how long you feel "full", so you don't get urges to eat again. Also, often your brain can mix up feeling thirsty with being hungry; try drinking lots of fluids, preferably water, during and in between classes. You might just be thirsty, and not hungry.

Hope that helps!

Reasons for voting decision: Pro essentially conceded in the 2nd round, so arguments to Con. Con's sources where overwhelming, and he/she really needed to explain where/why the research shows the resolution to be negated. Still, Con gets source points.
