Why is hun spiser 'begge' kjøtt og brød not acceptable for this?

have a look at the information at https://www.duolingo.com/skill/nb/Numbers

If you can't replace (for example) both by all, then you can't use begge.

Takk. Appears I misinterpreted. As there were only the 2 items on the list (i.e. meat and bread), I thought that would be appropriate. Apparently not!

When you have two items the expression is 'både og'. 'Jeg har både en bror og en søster. Begge spiser kjøtt.'

I found this sentence in Past Perfect skill. I don't think it should be there.
