  • Kids get what 20 minutes to scarf down their lunches in CPS? HA even if they were absolutely the healthiest lunches (which they are not) this is unhealthy - what are you going to do about that one? CPS brown bags are the WORST ever

    "20 minutes to scarf down their lunches"

    Er..."scarf down" would be two minutes. Actually, one can eat a meal with appropriate portions--chewing each bite ten times--in less than 20 minutes.

    You may want extra time for kids to hang out and converse with their friends, but 20 minutes for eating is perfectly adequate.
