I wouldn't think so.
It MIGHT be, but it could equally just be a family that likes bread.
I love bread. There was a time a while ago when I served just a slice of buttered white or grain bread with a lot of our dinners. We all like bread here (me not anymore... too filling).

Maybe, i dont know, it used to be the norm for me growing up. We always had bread with dinner, we would make a sandwhich with our dinner, so it would fill us up more as there wasnt heaps to go around.

I always thought it was a sign you or your parents grew up in the UK and assumed it was a tradition that people from the UK had bread with their meals.
When I cook dinner - I try to have all food groups (carbohydrate as potatoes, or pasta or whatever) so never wanted to have bread with meals as it's an unwanted carb on my plate. My DH frequently wants to have bread with his meals, but I try to discourage it as I almost feel like it's an insult to the fact that I've made a balanced meal and the kids always follow suit to copy dad. I especially hate it if I haven't made school lunches and I end up with 3 pieces of bread left or whatever to make 2 lunches.
ETA: sorry - meant to say - I vote - nothing to do with poverty in my opinion.

Hmm I know i'm eating at a fancy restaurant if they bring complimentary bread out to the table At home, we have bread with a lot of meals - usually Turkish or ciabatta, drizzled with olive oil. I believe it's common practice in many countries around the world I don't associate it with poverty.

Yeh ill add im italian, and going to my nonnas for big cook ups bread was always served, italian bread tho not white slice, and yup served with pasta, lasagne etc, people would soak up theleft over sauce with it and gobble it down.
But also my family back in italy were extremely poor. So maybe it is?
I do find it odd that a grown person isnt allowed to make the decision of having/wanting bread with dinner...
