Introduction

What can you buy in the meat, poultry and seafood department?

In this department, you can buy all kinds of meat, poultry and seafood.

 However, to continue, you need to make sure you know what meat, poultry and seafood mean. 

Meat is the word used for the parts of animals that you can eat. The animals are usually cows, lambs or sheep, and pigs. Meat from a cow is usually called beef, meat from a lamb is called lamb, but meat from sheep is usually called mutton, and meat from a pig is called pork. 

There are also other animals that people eat. Some people eat meat from other animals, like camels, reindeer and deer. In general, you can eat meat from a number of different animals, even horses. When you think of the animals that you get meat from, they all have one thing in common, their feet! All of these animals have hooves

Poultry is the word used for meat from birds. So if you are buying chicken meat, it is usually called poultry. Other birds that are common to eat are geese and ducks. Another name for these types of birds is fowl. Some people like to hunt birds for eating purposes, like pheasants and grouse. 

Seafood is the word used for the animals from the sea. These animals can be fish, shell fish, or even whales and seals. 

When you buy this type of food, it is always important to think about the conditions the animals have had before they were killed. Animals that have lived in poor conditions have not had a good life. This may be one of the reasons that some people would rather be vegetarians, people who do not eat meat.
