Could someone please explain when one would use alimento instead of cibo and vice versa? Thank you.

Hi Tom, Cibo came from Latin: cibus, i, m.=food Alimento also came from Latin: alimentum, i, n.=food I think cibo is used more often than alimento. Examples: Fanno del cibo buonissimo They do excellent food. Il cibo vegetariano The vegetarian food alimenti biologici organic food E si parlerà ancora di prodotti alimentari. And we 'll speak again about food
