    From the perspective of many 'ancient cultures', all meals were likely important, because it was common for many people not to know when their next meal might be or what it would consist of. When food was scarce, every meal was important.


    Breakfast has been considered the most important meal, by many, for a while now. It kick-starts your metabolism (after many hours of not eating) and gives you energy for the physical and mental demands ahead (in your day). Per webmd "Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health, including better memory and concentration, lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, and lower chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight."


    Some interesting info in this article that discusses if breakfast really is the most important meal of the day.

    I was always told that breakfast was the most important meal.

    From bedtime to morning is the longest time frame that most people go without eating something and so the first meal you get is what gets you fueled for your day.

    Dinner should be the smallest meal of the day because you are ending your day and don't need as much fuel for the rest of your evening.  (in most cases.)

    Of course, this is based on HEALTH and not cultural issues.  Some cultures might put more emphasis on certain meals due to traditions of gathering for those particular meals.
