We know that Living Organisms are of 2 types

  • Plants
  • Animals(Including Humans)

 

Plants

They make their own food(by process called Photosynthesis)

 

Animals(Including Human beings)

They do not make their own food               

They get food from plants (Example- Horse eat grass)

Some of animals get their food by eating other animals (Example - Tiger eats deer)

 

How do Human Beings get food?

  • Plants(We eat fruits and vegetables)
  • Other Animals(Some of us eat chicken or fish)
