|Halacha - Making kiddush before kriat hatorah|

|Answer: Once Shacharis has been davened there is no problem eating a seudas arai. There are 2 different issues at hand, first it is inappropriate to eat before thanking Hashem for giving us life. This is satisfied through Shacharis. Second, one may indulge in a large meal to the point of forgetting to daven, but this does not apply to a seudas arai. If one is ill or appoints a shomer to remind him to daven Mussaf, even a seudas keva may be consumed according to Shmiras Shabbos K'Hilchaso 52:14.
