Food vs. Non-Food

Is it Food?



So, The Chef says I am becoming a really skilled eater. But she says I have a "discernment" issue. She says I sometimes try to eat things that are "not food." 

What I would like to know is, how am I supposed to be sure?

Take this lovely blade of grass. The Chef tries to have something green on the menu each day. She likes to "eat local". She has also been a fan of "Baby Led Weaning", where I am supposed to feed myself. I figure that by harvesting and eating this grass, I am fulfilling all of The Chef's hopes at once.

Instead of applauding my proactive behavior, The Chef makes shriek-y noises and takes my grass away. Hmph.
