Some of the foods we eat come from animals, including beef, veal, lamb, pork, fish and chicken. Other foods come from plants, including rice, wheat, fruit, beans and vegetables.
We also eat food that animals make. For example, chickens produce eggs and cows give milk. Plants produce food too, such as edible fruits. Plant and animal foods are used to make other foods, such as bread and cheese.
Many processed foods use a combination of foods from animal and plant sources. Biscuits are made from flour (food from a plant) while also containing butter and milk (food sourced from an animal).
