This is not good English. " She continues to eat the meal" or " She continues to eat" are both correct but one does not say " She continues the meal".
Thank you for the note! I have replaced this with another sentence (hopefully correct :P ).
Could we say it for the meal though? eg: The meal will continue after the break. ??
Yes indeed in the same way as you can say "the match will continue after the interval". I am not sure but I think continue followed by a noun requires a preposition.
