Nutrition in amoeba is holozoic. Thus, solid food particles are ingested which are then acted upon by enzymes and digested. It is an omnivore, feeding on both plants and animals. Its diet includes bacteria, microscopic plants like the diatoms, minute algae, microscopic animals like other protozoa, nematodes and even dead organic matter.

Since it is a unicellular organism, amoeba does not have any specialised structure or organ for the process of nutrition. It takes place through the general body surface with the help of pseudopodia.
