Elementary school students need more time to eat lunch.
That’s the word from the State Auditor’s Office (SAO), which recently performed an audit on lunchtime practices and scheduling.
During that audit, the SAO visited 31 elementary schools across the state, including a stop locally at Mukilteo Elementary, and found that most schools did not give their students the recommended amount of time to eat.
Per the report, research shows that when students go to recess before lunch and have more time to eat, they are more likely to make healthier choices in the lunch line.
