    What you had for snacks? See below
    What you had for breakfast? See below
    1, 2 and 3 are correct.

    4 - I'm not sure what you mean. Are you asking what the person had available to eat as a snack, or are you asking them what they ate as a snack?

    Either way, "What did you have for snacks?" would work.

    5 - What did you have for breakfast?

    Remember that "had" when used in the interrogative becomes "did I/you/he/we/you/they have". You need the auxiliary "did".

    Ok but if i directly want to ask what that person ate for breakfast so can i say ,What you ate for breakfast or what did u have for breakfast should be used.so using What you had for lunch is also incorrect ,right.
    also if i have to ask what is made for lunch what shall i say what is made for lunch is this correct or can this be better

    Re: PLEASE CORRECT THESE SENTENCES

    Either of these are okay:
    What did you have for breakfast/lunch?
    What did you eat for breakfast/lunch?


    What did you make for lunch?
    What's for lunch?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
