Students are hungry


The Mirror reporter

Many teenagers are constantly hungry throughout the day because they have a fast metabolism, they’re skipping meals, or simply because they haven’t been able to eat. This is a problem because according to LIVESTRONG, teens should eat at least three meals and two snacks a day.

Teenagers need more nutrients than anybody, especially since their bodies are still developing but how will Stevens Point Area Senior High school students get the nutrients they need when food is banned from the second floor and some from classes on the first floor?

Personally, I believe that teens should be able to eat whenever they feel the need to. I don’t mean having a full course meal in the middle of class but a couple of snacks here and there throughout the day. Food should at least be allowed on both floors first hour because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day but some students don’t even get to have breakfast when they come to school. Thus food should be allowed in class as long as students pick up after themselves.

Not eating well can cause teens to become irritable, depressed, and develop problems such as eating disorders according to U.S. News. Teens are in a happier mood, have more energy, and do better in school when they get the nutrients they need.

They have enough stress as it is and food doesn’t need to be one of them.
