    Filipinos eat five to six times a day: breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch (noontime meal), afternoon snack and dinner (evening meal) or after dinner/midnight snack. Snacking is eating light foods between regular meals or simply meryenda. The morning snack also known as Segundo Almuerzo or second breakfast is eaten around 10am while the afternoon snack is eaten between 3 to 4pm. Filipinos prefer fresh, flavorful and juicy snacks. While snacking has been a tradition, it has evolved with the different working hours particularly in the BPO sector and those with 24-hour working companies.
