And now, for the information you are here for:

The duration of your Sandwich bonus (Meal Power) is thirty minutes of real-life gameplay time. The clock will start ticking as soon as you finish chowing on that beautiful sandwich you’ve made.

How to Check the Time Remaining on your Meal Power in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

This can be easily checked at any time if you press the right D-pad on your Nintendo Switch. In the right part of the screen, a status menu bar will show up with all the information you need on the matter.

How to Renew or Extend the Duration of your Meal Power in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Sadly, there’s no other game mechanic in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet that you can use to extend (renew) your Meal Power duration, other than eating the sandwich again. It is only important to note that eating a sandwich again just resets the timer back to 30:00 (which is a hard cap on the buff duration) so keep an eye on the timer so that you can plan your next meal’s timing better.
