The Eating Animation
Eating is a very important game mechanic, since keeping the Hunger Bar high allows the Player to regenerate Health. Not eating can result in an inability to Sprint, a non-regenerating health bar and starvation.
To eat, the Player must long-press the screen while holding an edible Food Item. The eating animation will occur, and the Player will regenerate Hunger.
- Before Update 0.12.1, instead of gaining Hunger Points, the Player would gain Health points instead.
- Even though there is food in Creative Mode, it is only for Breeding or decorational purposes, until Update 1.7.
- Cakes are the only food that don't have an eating animation.
- The Player can't eat if he/she has full Hunger.
- As of Update 1.1, the eating animation can be seen in third person.
