I'm half tempted to mine down to once a day but I work my prisoners like a beast so they need 2 eating times. This may allow them to get into more of a rhythm of eating instead of having 3 times to eat in a day. It may or may not upset the balance. Just a thought.
I think one eat regime a day would be able to keep the prisoners happy based on their current rate of hunger accumulation (Alpha-12 context). Problem as I said earlier is that not everyone eats at that one hunger regime, so those prisoners go for over 24 hours with no food. I don't think eating once a day is very realistic in a modern prison, so it's okay in my mind that prisoners won't eat if they're not very hungry, and players are forced have more than one eat regime to cover everyone's habits and situation. I do think, however, that prisoners should fulfill their needs at lower thresholds. Prisoners only seem to eat when their hunger need climbs above four pluses '++++.' Perhaps it would be better if they filled up with food after only two?
