Eating more than one time a day

Q: It is sunnah to eat one meal a day. But the method of meal is (any of the regular occasions in a day when a reasonably large amount of food is eaten) and so in my breakfast I only eat a bowl of cereal or 2 toast with milk so is it considered a meal because it is less than lunch or dinner and it’s not a reasonably large amount?


A: If one needs to eat more than one time a day it is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
