According to various studies, the vast majority of Czechs have for breakfast tea or cocoa and buttered bread with butter and jam or honey. Some have whole wheat Czech bread or fruit or vegetables.
The majority of Czech students eat in school canteens, currently they almost replace homemade meals for which we are accustomed to, another advantage is that the meals in the school canteen gives hot meal every day. Personally, I think that food in our school canteen is very tasty. As usual lunch is such a typical Czech meal (pork and cabbage dumplings, sirloin ....), but students can certainly choose multiple dishes such as spaghetti, goulash, pancakes, pizza .... There are very few people who would prepare their lunch at home. Most working people subscribe to some lunch and go to restaurants for cheaper lunch menu.
Dinner Regarding the typical Czech dinner, the habits are of different families. Some prefer a light meal in the family circle, the other prefers a hearty dinner in a similar composition. Many families, however, use the opportunity to visit restaurants and link dinner with a nice opportunity to sit with family members outside the home. Regular dinners may be a yogurt or a bread with salami, vegetables and cheese.
