It is shown in the very first season of the manga that Eren meets his father and was really happy about it but why did he eat him?

This happened when his father decided to give his power to Eren. Though in the process Eren becomes a pure titan and eats up his dad hence, as he took all the power he had held.

Grisha defeated Freida Reiss and took control of the Founding Titan, and killed each member of her family except Rod Reiss who escaped.

After this, he is successfully shown to inject a serum kind of thing into Eren who turns into a Titan and kills him.
