It is quite hard to tell what the australopithecines ate because their teeth arent very specialised, and it is through the form of the teeth that we can tell most about an animal may have eaten. One thing we can say is that their diet probably wasn't particularly specialised because their teeth aren't specifically adapted to a particular type of diet such as being meat eaters or fruit eaters. The tiny, microscopic scratches left on their teeth from the food they ate suggests a diet something like modern day gorrillas, but it is important to remember that the australopithicus includes several different species which each would have had their own dietary patterns.
It has been postulated that they would have survived on a diet of nuts, berries and edible greens.

Australopithecus an amersis to Australopithecus afarnesis and Australopithecus bahrelghazal. Australopithecus afarensis to Australopithecus africanus to Australopithecus garhi.

It is believed that the Australopithecus ate berries, leaves, plants, and meat. There were several species, and each may have had their own diet.
They are very similar to us and ate what we would eat: just about anything they could find.
They preferred softer foods such as leaves, grass and fruit.
