If they are given a paid break then they may eat during it, usually 15 minute paid breaks for work longer than 3 hours are required, however for shifts lasting at least five hours and as long as 8 a standard break whether paid or unpaid can be forced upon the employee. You as the employer, however, may give special circumstance that they be allowed to eat while performing the job. In which case they do not have to take an unpaid break if they don't want to. This is to the best of my knowledge in my home state of New Hampshire.
