Wouldn't "De" work here as well? :)
No, "eten" is a gerund (a verb functioning as a noun) and therefore you need to use "het".
Finally, some semblance of a rule!
I don't understand when i should use "De" and when "Het"

"Het" and "de" is going to drive me up the wall.
Oh, I hate calling meals this way. For me dinner is in the afternoon, not in the evening. What about word supper for the evening meal? No one uses that? I'm confused.
