Mensagem:  Hi ,

I 'd like to know when we use food as countable noun : foods  
Sometimes I see fruits , foods and I don't know why it is in plural (once it is an uncountable noun )or if it is misspelled or if it is correct . For instance , at Outback in the USA , there is magazine for children written :
"One of Kylie's favorite foods is called eucalyptus ..." so , why foods here ? and how can I differentiate its use ?

Thanks ,

Madá
