All organisms on Earth eat food. For a spider, this food could be a small insect. For a bear, this food could be a fish. For a child, this food could be a bowl of oatmeal and a piece of toast. There are many different types of food to choose from. One common problem is choosing the wrong type of food. Everyone eats, but not everyone eats safely. Make sure to know what is in the food you are eating, where the food came from, and if it is safe enough to eat.
