Strange though is the comparison between "lunch break" and "coffee break". We don't or, we don't at my place of work "take coffee" in the same manner that we "take lunch". The construction is the same; you would think that the wording would be too.
I don't really agree that the "take" in put lunch" refers to the time - Laconia xxx dating it would feel that way to tk since nowadays we don't use "take" as a synonym for "eat" that much.

But that being said, think about "take tea" for a use of "take" as eating.
It's interesting because the meaning of "take" as "ingest" has Lioking much faded away, to the point where we can't even recognize its use in phrases such as "take lunch" we only think of it that way in phrases like "take drugs".
