    No, "I'll eat your food" is correct.

    I was asking in the sense that what would we say if we are going to make someone eat the food.
    Like:
    I'll buy you the clothes.
    I'll make you a coffee.

    Like:
    I'll buy you the clothes. = I'll buy the clothes for you.
    I'll make you a coffee. = I'll make a coffee for you.
    You can hardly eat someone's food for them.
    If you want to make someone eat their food, just say, "Eat your food".

    This is what I want to ask:
    If we are going to get food for someone to eat then what should we say?

    Question Re: correct the sentence

    Is this also correct?
    'I'll get you eat something' or 'I'll get you eat'.

    OK, so if we are going to treat someone to burger then shall we say that:
    I'll get you burger to eat.

    I'll get you a burger (to eat). to eat is kinda redundant - what would you do with a buger if not eat it?
    I'll get you to eat a burger. would sound like a bad movie character talking to a kid who doesn't want to it one.
