I still can't get the difference between måltid and mat or måltidet and maten :(

Can this also mean, "You are eating the food" using the formal you?

The "formal you" is, by and large, no longer a thing in contemporary Norwegian. For this reason, we have left it out of the course entirely. No Norwegians I have met use it anymore.

I have met some that use it, but they are mostly old people. And the few younger people i have heard use it, always get annoyed looks "are you old or some kind of hipster?" is basically the reaction.
