The best food mods for Minecraft

Food is an important aspect of Minecraft. You can find it, fight for it, or grow it yourself. It is crucial to always stay satiated to ensure your survival. Food replenishes hearts when you are injured, and if your hunger bar is empty, your health will decrease. A well-fed adventurer is a happy adventurer!

Although Minecraft offers many good food options, there will come a time when you simply want a bit of variety. The good news? You have plenty of options to keep yourself satiated and satisfied for a good while with these food mods.

Now that Minecraft is in version 1.20.1, we are revisiting our list of the best food mods to see what is still current and adding new mods that you can use in your crafting adventures. There is a mod for every need!

9 Waffle's Placeable Foods by WilliamWaffle

Minecraft Best

Why can cakes be placed and eaten while everything else needs to be held in hand? WilliamWaffle decided to make better use of this peculiar mechanic with Waffle's Placeable Foods. This mod offers about a dozen new foods, including hot chocolate, hamburgers, Pocky, marshmallows, and more.

You can place and eat these foods on the ground just like cakes, or hold them in your hand and consume them while walking. Some foods also provide new status effects. It's a fun mod that adds some flavor to your game.

8 Crafty Cuisine by RandomMcSomethin


Crafty Cuisine by RandomMcSomethin is another simple yet great mod that adds new dishes from standard foods. In the words of RandomMcSomethin, the mod aims to "fill the natural gaps in the food system." It aims to utilize as many standard resources as possible and prevent a backlog of useless resources later in the game.

The mod also avoids adding too many additional resources and strives to make the recipes compatible with the base game as much as possible. It aims to expand upon the offerings of the base game rather than introducing completely new things.

7 Pam's HarvestCraft 2 - Food Core by pamharvestcraft

Pam's HarvestCraft 2 - Food Core, created by pamharvestcraft, is possibly the most extensive and diverse food mod. It adds kitchen utensils (pans, rolling pins, juicers, etc.) for easy cooking and introduces 120 new recipes that can be made with standard ingredients.

It can be played independently or in combination with its three companions - Crops, Trees, and Food Extended. Crops and Trees add new plants that can be harvested to obtain new foods, and Food Extended provides additional recipes. The four mods are best played together to enjoy the full culinary experience.

6 Farmer's Delight by vectorwing

2 Spice Of Life: Carrot Edition by lordcazsius

Although this mod doesn't add anything to the food selection, it changes the functionality of the food system. The standard Minecraft tries to encourage you to diversify your food choices, but Spice Of Life: Carrot Edition by lordcazsius rewards you for it. Eat new foods and gain more health! You can earn up to ten hearts, for a total of twenty.

Spice Of Life makes the process of finding new foods entertaining - keep track of what you've already eaten and what you still need to eat, and turn it into a game. It has also been designed to work with popular food mods and promote the use of cooking mechanics. Variety truly is the spice of life.

1 Enhanced Farming by Mrbysco

In the end, it all comes down to farming. Sometimes, you just want to turn Minecraft into a slightly more interesting farm simulator, spending the whole day growing fruits and vegetables, and knowing that you've done a good job.

Improved Agriculture by Mrbysco takes you back to that simple time and adds a few new tools to make it easier, along with a variety of foods such as avocados, cucumbers, pears, olives, oranges, lemons, grapes, and garlic. You also get new tools like a scarecrow to deter mobs, a rake, and new recipes. It's a small change, but it makes farming a little more vibrant.
