Consumption of food and drinks should not be allowed in classrooms, as is typically stated within some class syllabuses.
Having no food and drinks in a classroom, there will be no crumbs, spills and other residue that attract unwanted creatures that could disturb class activities.
A lack of food in class would also eliminate the risk of stains on the chairs, floor and desks, since foods can be a messy ordeal.
There is also no need to eat or drink in the class when most teachers give breaks during class and typically many classes are at least an hour and a half, which it’s safe to say you likely will not starve.
Accidental spills of drinks on the electronics would be nonexistent if there were no drinks in class, which would save money on repairs or replacement of an item lost to liquid damage.
Food wrappers, leftovers and sweet drinks can pile up in trash cans and attract ants or cockroaches, which could create potential health concerns.
This no food policy would also lower the risks associated with food allergies, since students may be unaware of a classmate’s allergies to something they eat in class.
Eating and drinking also makes distracting noises. The opening of bags, bottles, loud chewing and many of the other sounds associated with eating can hamper other students’ abilities to hear a lecture.
No food and drinks in classes have been around when we were in the school systems like the LAUSD, which should not be hard since it has been done.
When you eat before class, it can help with the need of food in class and can typically keep the person focused on the class rather than on their stomach being hungry.
When a hefty meal is consumed, the need for snacks is eliminated, which can prepare for a smooth day ahead.
Having all this being said, no food and no drinks in classrooms is a great benefit to all and just keeps the classroom clean, efficient and just clear from loud noises from wrappers or drinks being opened.
