I want to be able to eat in Creative Mode. Is there any way to do this with commands?

    I think it works for golden apples. – Fabian Röling Feb 11 at 7:57
  • The simple method is to issue /gamemode survival - it's not a cheat to switch modes in a creative world. – SF. Feb 11 at 12:11

No, there is no way to eat in creative mode in vanilla (unmodded) minecraft. The purpose of eating is to replenish your food bar, but you never need to do that in creative mode. That's also why you can't eat in survival with a full food bar: there's just no reason to. See: Why can't players on creative mode be able to eat?

The one exception to this are golden apples and enchanted golden apples, solely because they serve a purpose beyond just filling up your food bar.

  • technically, in pe you can eat with a full food bar. – iVhagar Feb 11 at 1:14
  • @Niffler the question is about Minecraft 1.12, which doesn't exist for PE. – Pikachu the Parenthesis Wizard Feb 11 at 1:19
  • ok nevermind. Are there any mods that allow eating in Creative? – Duel Feb 11 at 1:36
  • @Duel I really doubt it, most people don't have a use for eating in Creative. This might be helpful, though: minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding-java-edition/…. – Pikachu the Parenthesis Wizard Feb 11 at 1:38
  • @SupaMegaDuckyMomodaWaffle : actually, some mods introduce food that can be eaten when your bar is already full. I suspect you could still eat these in creative mode. – Stese Feb 14 at 7:56

Depends. In Bedrock Edition (Pe,Xbox,ect.) You can eat in creative and peaceful if you've gotten the most recent update.


Simple answer, there is no way at the moment. However, they might add one in the future
