A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
MEANING:adjective: Of or relating to a meal.
ETYMOLOGY:From Latin prandium (late breakfast, luncheon, or meal). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ed- (to eat, to bite) that is also the source of edible, comestible, obese, etch, fret, edacious, and postprandial.
USAGE:"It's different in Britain and the US, where school lunch is generally collective and systematised. As the political scientist Jennifer Rutledge notes, state intervention in children's prandial intake has usually been driven by security fears."
Elizabeth Farrelly; Women Have Bitten Off More Than They Can Chew With School Lunch; The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia); Oct 8, 2009.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter. -John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)
