Ugh. That sounds dreadful. I'm sorry. :(

I usually never do. But that's because someone has to come and physically give me a break and cover my room. I don't have an option of just leaving.

I may work while eating, but it is rare that I miss lunch completely!

Rarely.  I make a point to step away even if it's only for half my lunch.  I used to work for a Japanese company and our bosses would stress that despite how hard you work and how busy you are, you have to take your lunch and step away for your own mental health.

Only when I came in late or am leaving early.

Often, but I so much time on Cafemom that it all balances out.

I try to get 30 minutes or so of quiet, but the babies don't always work with me on this one, LOL. I always eat lunch, but I never get to step away.

--- This is why daycare providers insist on NAPTIME, even if the kids are older. I need a mental break in a 12 hour day :)

pretty much every shift... maybe 1 x week I get a break if I'm lucky.

Never. I eat lunch when my client does.
