If you are working nights and do not want to miss breakfast the easiest way is to take two apples and a thermos flask of green tea when you go for the night shift .you can wash a nd eat the apples for breakfast and pour a cup of green tea to finish it.From what you have written I gather that you have no problems with your other meals so I will not comment about them

hi anil...i understand what problem you might be facing in the night shifts.. all you need to do is eat small meals every 2-3 hours from the time you are awake to the time your sleep.. eat your last meals 3 hours before you sleep.. you can have fruits, nuts , chana kurmura, sprouts, egg whites in mid meals..have your lunch and dinner properly like salads, 1-2 rotis, veggies/ grilled non veg.. you can carry milk/ some meal replacement like glucerna-sr with you as a mid night snack.. drink plenty of water... try to sleep enough
