In the morning, most adults drink coffee or tea. Children and young people often eat milk products with cereals such as corn flakes, muesli or oatmeal.
Generally lunch is a cold meal consisting of slices of rye bread buttered and covered with for instance various kinds of sausage, sliced boiled egg or liver paste, a baked mixture of chopped pig’s liver and lard of a spreadable consistency.
The evening meal is called middag, because it used to be eaten in the middle of the day. It is eaten at home and most Danes make an effort to gather the family around a hot meal every evening.
