Meals In The Mid 1700’s



Colonial meals were different from what we know today.

Breakfast was taken early if you were poor, later if you were rich.

 There was no meal called lunch.

Dinner was the mid-day meal. For most people in the 18th century it was considered the main (biggest) meal of the day.

 Supper was the evening meal. It was usually a light snack.
