Most of us enjoy eating, and taking the calories and nutrition from the food we eat is important for life. Eating food gives us energy and this energy powers everything we do, from playing a favourite sport to studying for a maths test or playing a game. It helps us fight off illness and helps us think. It makes us grow and keeps our hearts beating and the blood circulating through our bodies. Without energy from food, we could not live.

A food chain is a diagram that shows us how animals are linked by what they eat; in food webs we represent the links between animals who eat or are eaten by more than one kind of animal. We explain how children learn about food chains in the primary-school classroom in our guide for parents.
The web of life was always meant to be interconnected; teach all about it with these free printables about food chains and food webs. Can you imagine the perfect cycle of life? No death? Us living in harmony with no exception.
