Meal allowance for self employed?

Can a self employed person claim a meal allowance as an allowable expense?

I understand than an employer can pay an employee a meal allowance under certain conditions, but what about a self employed person that travels around as part of their normal work, therefore having no kitchen facilities? Also can a subcontractor on site claim a meal allowance?
