iDevide ikoon Common meals

A meal is an instance of eating, specifically one that takes place at a specific time and includes specific, prepared food.

Meals take place primarily at homes, restaurants, and cafeterias, but may occur anywhere. Regular meals occur on a daily basis, typically several times a day. Special meals are usually held in conjunction with such occasions as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and holidays. A meal is different from a snack in that meals are larger, more varied, and more filling.

We usually have three main meals a day:

Breakfast - between 7:00 and 9:00,

Lunch - between 12:00 and 1:30 p.m.

Dinner - (sometimes called Supper) - the main meal. eaten anytime between 6:30 and 8:00 p.m. (Evening meal)

iDevice ikoon Traditional English breakfast

The Traditional English breakfast

The traditional English breakfast consists of eggs, bacon, sausages, fried bread, baked beans and mushrooms. Even though not many people will eat this for breakfast today, it is always served in hotels and guest houses around Britain.

The traditional English breakfast is called the 'Full English' and sometimes referred to as 'The Full English Fry-up'.

Now-a-days, however, a typical English breakfast is more likely to be a bowl of cereals, a slice of toast, orange juice and a cup of coffee. Many people, especially children, in England will eat a bowl of cereal. They are made with different grains such as corn, wheat or oats. In winter many people will eat porridge or boiled oats.
