What does 1일 1떡 mean?

Is it something about food or what? I tried reading an article, but I did not understand the context because of this wording.

    Depends on where you found the expression... 떡 is sometimes used as a slang for sex - the expression might be saying "have sex every day."

  • Without context it is hard to pinpoint it's meaning (especially since I only recently learning the language). But It'd say it suggest you should eat a rice cake everyday. But once again this is a literal translation and might mean something else as @jick pointed out

말은 아주 많은의미를 가집니다 1인1떡이란

말그대로의의미 하루에 하나의 떡을가지거나 먹을수 있다

말에 숨어있는의미 하루에 두개이상의 떡이나 물질적인 무언가를 가질수없다 하나의 떡 혹은 하나만 가질수 있다

예시 오늘 회사에서 일을하면서 이런말을들었다 오늘은 식사할때 1인1떡이니 참고해주세요 그래서 일을 끝내고 식당으로 갔다 사람들은 떡을나눠주고 있었고 한사람당 하나의 떡을 받았다 나는 떡을 더 줄수 없는지 물어봤고 떡은 하나만 준다고 했다

Words have so much meaning What is 1 person, 1 rice cake?

literal meaning You can have or eat one rice cake a day.

Hidden meaning in words You can't have more than two pieces of rice cake. You can't only have one rice cake

example I heard this while working at the company today. Please note that today's meal is one rice cake per person. So I went to the restaurant after work. People were handing out bread, and each person received a rice cake. When I asked him if he wanted more rice cake, he said he would give me one more rice cake.

Example 2 I heard this while working at the company today. From now on, only one rice cake is allowed per person for meals, so please refer to it. So I went to the restaurant after work. People were handing out rice cakes, and each person received a rice cake. When I asked him if he could give me more rice cakes, he said he would only give me one a day from now on (and from now on).
