"Let's make a stop to eat" is not something that english speakers would say. We would say "Let's stop to eat"

On the other hand, it appears to be what Português speakers would say and since it's teaching Português, it's completely fine. Especially since it's grammatically correct too.

In the English lessons, "Let's stop to eat" would be preferred but if Duo kept accepting the multitude of incorrect but acceptable variants there were, we wouldn't learn what the correct Português phrasing is

That is an accepted answer already, but I agree that it should probably be the main one.

Another accepted translation: We'll take a break to eat.
More natural?

Is this case, would be ok if the speaker was working, studying or involved in an specific activity. If the speaker was travelling, for example, this construction wouldn't be acceptable.
