    I support the breakfast program but I believe for it to be effective some changes should be implemented. The most major one is don't give kids food if they say they are not hungry! If a kid isn't hungry, trying force them to eat will not benefit them in any way and if a child eats too much they will feel sick which will hinder their learning.

    1. I agree but I feel like nobody is being forced. Food is just there if you want it.

  4. I think that it is a bad idea to have breakfasts in classrooms because students are there to learn, and if they were hungry then they could've eaten at home. And also, there is a cafeteria that students can go to eat at.

    1. What about the kids who don't have food at home?

  5. I think that it is true that the cafeteria is made for food, but in the morning, kids like to eat in the classroom as it is easier and more comfortable.

  6. I think that schools should have the free breakfast for everybody, rich or poor. Just because somebody has a lot of money does not mean that they are not rushed in the morning. Everybody should be able to get breakfast in the morning, If they don't eat it then come up with a plan. Our school had kids go down to the cafeteria and go get it themselves if their hungry, instead of teachers giving them food and having them not eat. Have kids sign up and see if they want to eat or not. Nobody wants to learn on an empty stomach, your focus is off and you cant do your best.

  7. I think that schools should serve breakfast to their students in the morning because even if it does take away 10 minutes of instruction time it's still better then the students being hungry and distracted for the whole day. It is also true that many kids don't have time to eat in the morning and need to eat at school.

  8. I also support the breakfast program, mornings are very busy for a lot of people. And like it said in the reading its hard to concentrate on school work when your hungry. I also agree with Mellanie when she said don't give kids food when their not hungry, I know that I hate it when I'm being told to eat when I'm not hungry.

  9. I think that kids should eat wherever is more comfortable. They might not like the people in the lunch room. Or their friend is in the classroom alone but he/she needs to eat.

  10. I would support the breakfast program. I think that it is a good idea that kids are being served breakfast at school. I think that it will help kids focus in class now that they have had the most important meal of the day.I also think that that it helps kid who don't have time to eat breakfast in the morning.

  11. I kind of agree with giving some kids breakfast before school. Studies show that kids will not argue with teachers and learn better with a nutrious breakfast first.

  12. I think that there should be food available in the classroom. Many kids feel rushed in the morning and some cannot afford breakfast. This is a good idea because it will give kids the opportunity to learn on a full stomach.

  13. I sort of agree with giving kids food in the morning breakfast before school . But some kids don't have the stomach for it in the morning .
    For example I get sick in the morning if I eat to much .
