I'm new to Minecraft and I'm really enjoying it. I play every day, mining, jumping around and all that stuff, but then I noticed my food bar is not going down. What would cause that?

    On vanilla, if the food bar exists and is not going down, that means you are in Peaceful mode. – au revoir Nov 22 '13 at 17:44

    Or Creative Mode. – Cole Busby Nov 22 '13 at 17:49

    In Creative Mode there is no food bar at all. – au revoir Nov 22 '13 at 18:35

You are in Creative mode or on Peaceful difficulty

Creative Mode

Creative mode strips away the survival aspects of Minecraft and allows players to easily create and destroy structures.

Peaceful Difficulty

The Food Bar never depletes and players cannot eat anything except Golden Apples, unless the player has switched to Peaceful when their Food Bar was below the maximum.

    Not necessarily, could also be in peaceful mode. – tremor Nov 22 '13 at 18:07

    In fact, peaceful difficulty is significantly more likely. – Unionhawk Nov 22 '13 at 18:43
