The traditional " Spanish breakfast " consists of toast with butter and coffee or "cola-cao". But these days a lot of people have only a bowl of cereal with milk. The children at school often have a "packed" breakfast at break time in the morning, between 11:15 and 11:45 a roll and a milkshake or a roll and a can of cola or fruit juice.
Lunch is usually between two and three o´clock. We often eat fish, meat, vegetables, salad and bread. It is the most important meal in the day.
