And this relates to food ? Feels off topic to me?

I think Duolingo randomly gives you some previously learned material mixed in with the new, so you don't forget.

My Chinese teacher told me that you can also omit 的 when talking about close family members of others, not just your own. Why did Duo flag my answer as wrong then? They accept when I do it in every other situation. Was there something I missed here? My teacher said you can omit when referencing a close relationship to "你,他,她 as well as 我.

Thank you in advance to anyone who can answer my question.
