Kosher meat and fish

Animals with cloven hooves that 'chew the cud'* are 'kosher'.  This means Jews can eat sheep, cows, goats and deer.

Meat from these animals is kosher

(*This means food is chewed and swallowed. Then the food comes back to the mouth and is chewed again.)  

Jewish people can eat meat from birds like turkey, chicken and duck.

Meat from these birds is kosher

Jewish people can eat some fish.  They can eat fish with fins and scales.

Fish with fins and scales are kosher

Other foods are not kosher.  This mean Jews cannot eat pigs or shellfish like crabs or lobsters.
