Top 10 Best Food Items in Minecraft

You start out with literally nothing in Minecraft. This survival game can be brutal because of that, and the most important thing is food. I compiled the top 10 best food items in Minecraft, that will help you survive.

After battling monsters, you are left injured, most of the time. The best healing item will always be the food. Being a survival type of game means that you will need to find your best food sources.

If you don’t take care of the hunger, you will keep dying. Each type of food that you can consume in Minecraft will give you a certain amount of hunger bars filled. Some are better than others. Let’s see which is the best.

Number 10 – Honey Bottle

A honey bottle is one of the most underappreciated foods in Minecraft. When consumed, it removes your toxic effects. So, if you’re mining in the caverns and encounter cave spiders, you’ll have a way to get rid of the poison!

Hunger Bar filled – 6 hunger points, 3 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 1.2 points

Number 9 – Sweet Berries

If you’re just getting started, I highly recommend starting with a berry farm! While they are not as full as the other foods on the list, they are readily available.

In just a few first evenings, you may create a vast berry farm! This will keep you alive for many of those first difficult nights!

Hunger Bar filled – 2 hunger points, 1 meat slot

Saturation Bar filled – 0.4 points

Number 8 – Melon

Melons are another excellent crop to grow. While one slice might not fill you up very much, it is relatively easy to obtain! 3-7 slices make up one entire melon.

Melon is also used to make healing potions, thus having a melon farm should be a no-brainer.

Hunger Bar filled – 2 hunger points, 1 meat slot

Saturation Bar filled – 1.2 points

Number 7 – Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes have to be one of the best early starting Minecraft foods. While they may not provide as many hunger or saturation points as other foods in-game, their reachability makes them a good food source.

Look for them in chests in railway dungeons and you’ll be good to go for the rest of your game! Also, a Potato farm is the easiest in the world to maintain.

Hunger Bar filled – 5 hunger points, 2.5 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 6 points

Number 6 – Golden Carrot

Even if it’s expensive food, it’s still delicious. It provides numerous saturation points and is fairly easy to get.

If you have a gold farm, it is not difficult at all to obtain. You may also breed horses with golden carrots! As a result, it is beneficial in a variety of ways.

Hunger Bar filled – 6 hunger points, 3 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 14.4 points

Number 5 – Golden Apple

Another pricey food item in the game is the Golden Apple. While it may not fill your stomach as much, it does provide some wonderful benefits!

The classic golden apple has both regeneration and absorption properties. It will provide you with two extra hearts for 2 minutes. 

The reason why I placed it on 5th place it’s because of how expensive it is.

Hunger Bar filled – 4 hunger points, 2 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 9.6 points

Number 4 – Cooked Chicken

For good reason, chicken is one of the best foods in Minecraft. While it isn’t the best for filling your hunger and saturation bars, what makes it so great is that it is completely automatic and easy.

You can find chicken literally everywhere and making a chicken farm is the easiest thing ever. Just smash those eggs and walla! – Instant food!

Hunger Bar filled – 6 hunger points, 3 meat slots

Saturation Bar filed – 7.2 points

Number 3 – Cooked Mutton

Cooked mutton is another meat we’ll discuss. It’s not the best meat to eat because it’s not particularly filling, but it’s also not the worst.

If you don’t have a completely automated chicken farm, eat mutton first. This is because it provides you with more saturation points than chicken.

Hunger Bar filled – 6 hunger points, 3 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 9.6 points

Number 2 – Cooked Porkchops

Porkchops are the second finest meat to acquire! This is mostly due to the numbers, but it is also owing to the fact that pigs are extremely frequent to obtain.

In addition, a pig can have one to four pork chops. So pork chops are an excellent choice for every player out there!

Hunger Bar filled – 8 hunger points, 4 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 12.8 points

Number 1 – Steaks

Steak is one of the best foods for new players. That’s because it completely fills your hunger and saturation bars! It’s also very easy to obtain, especially if you build a cow farm. So, if you’re seeking for a superb food item, look no further!

Hunter Bar filled – 8 hunger points, 4 meat slots

Saturation Bar filled – 12.8 points

Conclusion

Although there are some food better than others, in terms of refilling your Hunger Bar and Saturation Bar, some food are much easier to make and that is why you should stick with them at times.

If you can make a Cow Farm early on, well that should be your hunger problems solved for the rest of the game. Now check out these fun activities that you can be doing!
