1. Do native speakers speak like this?

Our mother adds vegetables to the food because they're good for us.

  1. Is it ok to put 'the' before food?
  • Usually one would say "to our food" since you are stating she is cooking for you ("good for us"), without the last bit, it might mean she is cooking for other people. – Peter Feb 28 '18 at 8:33

That sentence is grammatical. You could say

to the food

to food she makes for us

to the food she makes for us

to our food
