    It's been reported by the Mirror that four in ten teachers have taught pupils who have not eaten for 12 hours!

    Students are grouchy, hungry, unable to concentrate and even falling asleep because they have no energy.

    During my school days my main motivation for getting up was for breakfast!

    Can you survive your morning lessons without any grub? :cookie:

    I usually eat my dinner at around 6PM and have a snack at 8PM before bed, then the next I eat after that is probably an apple & chocolate bar at 1PM ish, and I'm compleatly fine. I know it sounds bad, but I just don't feel hungry in the mornings, and I drink plenty of water that keeps me going.

    Even though I usually eat a bowl of muesli or porridge with an apple before going to school, my stomach is rumbling like a volcano by my second lesson - I'm sure that the classroom next door can hear me! The problem is that, when I do finally have a bite to eat at lunch, I fill up ridiculously quickly, despite only limiting myself to a small roll, a few slices of cucumber, several almonds and a box of raisins.

    I just cannot understand how anyone can survive without breakfast before school - I certainly wouldn't stand a chance!

    Not usually, never have time. The earliest I'll eat at school is 10:50 (at break) if I'm hungry. I get through all of my lessons fine, except Chemistry because it's just so boring.

    Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day Unless dessert counts as a meal? Haha, maybe I should try chocolate cake for breakfast...
    If I didn't have breakfast my stomach would be rumbling hugely in all my lessons up to break/ lunch. I could probably manage without it, but it's kind of embarrassing so I make sure I eat lots at breakfast to keep me going

    Anyone else confused by the statistic? I'd be surprised if any teacher doesn't regularly teach someone who hasn't eaten in 12 hours.

    I never used to eat breakfast and when I didn't I'd feel incredibly tired in school. You constantly think about food during the lesson rather than concentrating on your work. Thank goodness that doesn't happen anymore. :excited:

    You must eat breakfast to function. You must also eat to have a proper and regular bowel movement. It must be really uncomfortable throughout the day for people who skip breakfast.
