If every child in the school eats 1 bread a day and there is enough bread
to feed 30 children for 4 days, the school must have 30*4 = 120 bread.

Since 10 more children are added to the school, the number of children must be 40.

Therefore, the time for which the bread lasts is $$\frac{120}{40} = 3$$ days(Option C)
