Breakfast (aamiainen) is a substancial meal and it usually consists of sandwiches with toppings  such as cheese or cold cuts. Other common breakfast foods are yoghurt or viili (similar to yoghurt but less sour)  with cereals. Porridge (puuro) is also commonly eaten at breakfast. Lunch (lounas) eaten around noon,  is normally a warm meal. Many workplaces have a lunch restaurant and a hot free lunch is served in all primary and secondary schools. We have two words for dinner: päivällinen and illallinen. Päivällinen is eaten around 18:00 'clock but illallinen can be eaten much later and it may also be more formal than päivällinen.
