Learning the names of the the food (3 meals) in Mandarin is not too difficult. As 饭 （“fàn”, meaning “meal”, “rice”)is the root word for many phrases, it is easy to connect different words and extend vocabulary. Some of the names of the food are:

午饭 wǔ fàn - lunch
晚饭 wǎn fàn - dinner
点心 diǎn xīn - snack
麦片 mài piàn- cereal
水 shuǐ - water
果汁 guǒ zhī - juice

月饼 yuè bǐng - mooncakes
比萨 bĭ sà – pizza
