School children at risk of losing control over body weight.
Mandometer researchers examined how 11-13 year old children eat their school lunch. Although the lunch break is 45 minutes long, the children have so little time to eat their lunch that they eat almost twice as quickly as they would normally do. The shortage of time makes children eat in a manner similar to that of obese patients and patients with eating disorders.
