Minecraft's food selection has remained rather stagnant for many years now. Players have a choice between classic Minecraft meats like pork chops and chicken, and Minecraft crops like wheat, carrots, and potatoes.
These crops and foods have been a reliable and stable staple of Minecraft player's diets since the early days of the game. However, players will be happy to know that certain mods can extend and improve the food selection offered in the game. Here are 5 mods that affect food in Minecraft in April 2021.

#3 - Culinary construct
Culinary construct is a Minecraft mod directed at custom sandwiches and stews. What makes this mod great is that players are able to make a sandwich or stew out of any food item lying around in their game.
There are an incredible amount of options that players can choose from here. Players are able to make large or small sandwiches, and if a player uses more than 10 ingredients the sandwich may be at risk of splitting into smaller sandwiches.
This mod adds to the scale of how good tasting each sandwich is. Since players can add anything into a sandwich that they want, the sandwich will be rated on the disgusting to delicious scale, and depending on the food's quality it will start to affect the amount of health points a player receives for eating food.
#4 - The Spice of Life (and it's variations)
The spice of life mod is an interesting mod for Minecraft. Instead of just adding food to Minecraft, this mod tracks how diverse the player's food diet is in the game. The regular spice of life mod will punish players for eating the same foods too many times in a row by giving the player less and less health points for each food repetition.
The spice of life mod also has other variations, like the spice of life: carrot edition which rewards players for eating diversely as opposed to punishing them for not. These two spices of life mods can even be used together.
There's another spice of life mod: the potato edition, which takes the carrot edition one step further and adds in all sorts of complex rewards for players with diverse diets.
This mod isn't necessarily for those Minecraft players looking for new foods, but more so for players who are bored with Minecraft's food and hunger mechanics. Players who want to download the spice of life mod can click here. Click here for potato edition, and here for carrot edition.
