    "It's its food" is correct, but it's a little tough to say.

    That can't be right. That is because "it's" in that phrase means "belonging to it" and thus it should be "its".

    Re: Its or It's?

    Because it's a pronoun (*wink*), "it" follows the same forms as other pronouns: he's, she's and it's; his, her and its. "Its" is closest in actual form to "his," and surely no one would be tempted to include an apostrophe in "his" - even in a culture wherein the current U.S. President's name has drawn more than its (*wink*) fair share of apostrophes.
