Here is my best explanation:

'rice for example' is the definition.
(rice is a kind of grain)

'one feeding relative' is the wordplay.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'feeding' is an insertion indicator.
'relative' becomes 'gran' (I've seen this in other clues**).
'i' put within 'gran' is 'GRAIN'.
