A: It’s difficult to eat a croissant neatly
(Very true)

Since the croissant isn’t a living thing, “they” should be “it”

The problem is in English it would be the person eating that drops crumbs on the plate, it is not the croissants fault so grammar is a little different

Edit: I'm not completely sure about the "everyday life part". It may be better to simply omit it (i.e. end the sentence with "... in order to keep my body and mind healthy").
Q: I went to the croissant shop which is really famous in sydney today. Althouth I arrived there around 12 p.m., most of them have already sold out. But I was lucky that I got last one of chocolate croissant. soa natural?
A: The first sentence is a bit confusing. "Today I went to a really famous croissant shop in Sydney." is, to me, easier to understand as otherwise I don't know if the shop is only really famous in Sydney, or generally really famous. "Although I arrived there around 12pm, most of the croissants had sold out." Fixed a typo, and I think the "them" was a bit ambiguous so I substituted "the croissants". Perhaps others might think that "them" is better. "But, I was lucky enough to buy the very last chocolate croissant." "I got last one" doesn't sound right to me, and "very last" helps emphasise the luck.
