How to eat food in Minecraft: Best food items for beginners

Food not only helps replenish the hunger level but also increases the saturation of the player and restores health.

While playing Minecraft there are several things that a player needs to excel in the game. One of such things is food, which is very important in Minecraft. Thankfully, the game provides several ways where a player can acquire food with the help of fishing, farming, or hunting.

Food not only helps replenish the hunger level but also increases the saturation of the player and restores health. Players can choose from a variety of food; however, certain food items are better than others. In the early stages of the game, consuming the correct food will make the gaming experience better. We have listed down the best food items that Minecraft beginners should consume in the game.

Cooked salmon

One way of acquiring food is through fishing. To fish, the players are required to make a fishing rod that can be done with the help of three sticks and two strings. Through fishing, players can catch salmon, pufferfish, tropical fish, and cod.

Out of these fishes, only two can be cooked – cod and salmon. Cooked salmon replenishes six hunger and 9.6 saturation points, which is more than what cod offers. Apart from food items, fishing can also get players other useful items.

Baked potatoes

These are cooked potatoes that can be simply made by putting a potato in a furnace, campfire, or smoker. They are a great renewable source of food and players can even grow potatoes. This food item restores 5 hunger points and 6 saturation points. Players can find potatoes growing in villages or build their own farms for a constant supply.
