    Nicely arguable. As you say, both are "snacks", whereas food could be said to be what sustains the body.

    I think the answer is no, these are not correct. Better to say:

    Rice is a food
    Eggs are a food

    Rice and eggs are foods.

    Re: snack or food

    I would not use the article, thus:
    Cookies are food.
    Candy is food.
    Rice is food.
    Eggs are food.
