An organism's diet referred to what forms of food it chose to eat. Forms of diet included herbivore and carnivore.
Carnivores were flesh-eaters. They included non-sentients such as the tentacled dianoga, the krayt dragon, and the colo claw fish from Naboo, but also sentient species such as the Zabraks and the Pau'ans.
Herbivorous lifeforms such as the bantha, fed on plants.
Omnivores were organisms that fed on both plant and animal matter. Reeks were large, muscular omnivores native to the planet Ylesia that, while herbivorous by nature, could survive on meat.
Some species, like certain birds on Jelucan, and the crab gliders native to the gas giant Bespin, were carrion-eaters, feeding on refuse and other decaying organic matter.
Some species were energy-eaters. The conduit worms fed off the electrical wiring of starships, and the mynocks absorbed electrical, stellar and electromagnetic energy using their mouths.
