This paper explains the results of a survey of students' ideas about food as a scientific concept. The survey found that high school students in Singapore (n=66) displayed an anthropocentric view of food that was not generally applied across living organisms in heterotrophs (animals) or autotrophs (plants) as a whole. It is also noted that students understood the components of a balanced diet but confused the concepts of nutrients and water, believing the latter to be a food. Students felt that the biological functions of food are for sustenance, satiation, growth, and general well-being. They seemed to hold a simplistic view that anything that is edible is considered a food. (Contains 18 references.) (WRM)
