Valheim: Food - how to get it, recipes Valheim guide, walkthrough

On this page of the Valheim game guide you will find everything you need to know about food and how to prepare more advanced types of meals.

There is no advanced hunger and thirst management system in Valheim. Food is used to manage your character's health and stamina levels. Your character can eat up to 3 meals at once, and what they eat will affect their overall stamina and health points pool, as well as their regeneration rate. This bonus will last for a set period of time, after which the effect can be renewed by eating another meal.

How to obtain food?

Food in Valheim can be obtained in several ways – by finding it on the map, by growing it (carrots, turnips), by producing it (honey), by hunting game, or by fishing. You can also prepare certain meals using a variety of ingredients.
