Is the sentence grammatically right?

I have eaten lunch since I was really young.

Can this sentence directly/indirectly mean 'I ate lunch everyday'?

  • Everyday is an adjective (everyday clothes); use every day to refer to all days. You could say I have eaten lunch every day since I was really young.

I have eaten lunch since I was really young

Is grammatically correct, but could be understood literally to mean you have been eating lunch continuously (at one sitting) for many years, which is impossible, but people would probably understand what you mean

I have had lunch since I was really young
I have always had lunch since I was really young
I have eaten lunch every day since I was really young

using had is what a native speaker would probably say to mean they have had lunch

Many non-natives speakers will say

I have taken lunch

which seems dependent on how the phrasing is translated from their native language
