When I was a child, I was told not to buy food after school. What was that all about? It was the same even after school, so it goes without saying while we were at school. Was there a rule against bringing money to school to buy food?

Whether it was rational or not, as a child I thought it was a matter of course, but actually, it was not. According to what I have heard, in American schools, eating snacks during class, let alone after school, is not a problem. If a student in a Japanese school were to start eating snacks during class, his or her parents would be summoned to the school immediately.

Looking on the Internet, there are some articles that state that the reason why buying and eating snacks is prohibited is that "it makes it difficult to eat dinner and causes nutritional imbalance" or "some people feel uncomfortable in terms of manners," but I don't understand why it is prohibited. All I could understand was that many people think the rule is right, like a Zen question: "It's no good because it's no good."
