Feed the world,
Feed you and me,
It’s autotroph’s ability…
Feed the birds,
Feed the bees,
Producers feed you and me!
Autotrophs, autotroph,
Don’t buy bread in a loaf…


Autotrophs are organisms that can produce their own food.
Examples of autotrophs are green plants and algae which make food through photosynthesis.

Autotrophs play the role of producers in the food chain and are essential to the survival of all animals (consumers).
