Have you ever wondered what keeps us alive? If you have, then you must be knowing that there are three basic necessities in life – air, water, and food. Without any one of these, we are unable to sustain ourselves. Today, we bring you a collection that is inspired by the most delicious of the three – food.
What is food actually? Well, food can be described as a source of nutrition for any living being to sustain life. Or in simple terms, everything that is edible can be considered as food. So, yes, food is whatever you eat or drink, from the morning breakfast to lunches, dinners to snacks. There are different varieties of food available worldwide; each culture and country have their own unique food traditions. If you ask your parents, you might find out some special family food recipes that have been passed down the generations.
Usually, food is either sourced from plants or animals. Like vegetables and fruits are of plant origin whereas milk or meat is sourced from animals. Unlike the olden times of hunters and gatherers, getting food has become much easier and faster than it has ever been. Like how you can crave for something now and get it delivered in just a couple of hours. Let’s delay no further and get munching on this tasty collection of free printable food coloring pages.
