How isn't ice considered food?

Ice is just frozen water and according to my dictionary food is any nourishing substance that is eaten, drunk, or otherwise taken into the body to sustain life, provide energy, promote growth, etc. so according to this definition ice is considered food since water is food.

    What is the nutritional content of water?

    How many calories in water?

    How does water rank in terms of proteins, vitamins or dietary fibre?

    I am not saying water is not essential, just that it is a carrier, a solvent, a bulking agent and/or a wetting agent rather than being source of nutrition in its own right.

    Water isn't food. It does not provide energy.

    You are, of course, being obtuse. You can define "food" any way that suits your fancy. Rational people think of "food" as providing calories. There are no calories in water or ice. Or steam

      But food according to my dictionary is anything that is eaten or drunk and drinking water is something that is drunk.
