Can a plant make food?


Yes, a plant can make food.


Plants are autotrophs that prepare their own food by the process of photosynthesis.

Autotrophs are those organisms that can produce their own food by the process of photosynthesis. 

The term “autotroph” is taken from the root words “auto” for “self” and “troph” for “food” or ‘nourishment’.

We, humans, are heterotrophs that depend on plants (autotrophs) for food.
