I would not normally use this phrase... It 'sounds funny'. I'd use: "Що вони їдять підчас дня?" for "What do they eat during the day?"

    I would not normally use this phrase... It 'sounds funny'.

    It sounds OK in literary Ukrainian (although I think «підчас дня» should be accepted, too). This course teaches literary Ukrainian.

    "підчас дня" is a literal translation of the English phrase. In Ukrainian it's "протягом дня", not "під час".

    "Що вони їдять впродовж дня?" - this phrase must be accepted for the answer too.
