Tell us what’s happening:
Error: Cannot read property ‘innerHTML’ of undefined

Your code so far



class TypesOfFood extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <h1>Types of Food:</h1>
        {/* change code below this line */}
        <Fruits/>
        <Vegetables/> 
        {/* change code above this line */}
      </div>
    );
  }
};

// change code below this line
ReactDOM.render(TypesOfFood,document.getElementById('challenge-node'));

You have the wrong syntax in the ReactDOM.render function. For classes, the syntax is:

ReactDOM.render(<ClassName />,document.getElementById('challenge-node'));

where ClassName is the name you have chosen for the class.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
