Kauno “Versmės” vidurinės mokyklosReferatas:“Meals in Great Britain”1999KaunasMeals and all mealtimes are not the same in all the families. Breakfast is the first meal of the day. Most people do not have a full breakfast as they are in a hurry to their work. The ones who eat much at breakfast say that it is fine. English writer Somerset Maugham gave the following advice: ‘If you want to eat well in England, eat three breakfasts daily’. At noon or a bit later, that is at one o’clock p.m., comes a meal which is lunch for some people. More than half of the population have a hot dinner (called lunch) in the middle of the day.
