Bird’s Foods Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2

No, you didn’t misread the name of the content. The Bird’s Foods mod is another food mod and the author’s name just happens to be Bird. Or it was, back when the mod was relatively new. Bird’s Foods is over four years old now and the author’s name is different from what it used to be. The mod, however, still functions much the same as it always has. There are dozens of new food items and just as many recipes for putting them all together, including some special smelting and cooking recipes that end up inside a furnace rather than being put together at a crafting table.


There are several different types of foods to choose from, but you’ll find they’re all more or less the same in the end. They all fill your hunger bar and provide varying levels of saturation to keep you full for a while. There are meats like bacon, ground beef, chicken fingers and barbecued pork. There are soups and pies like beef stew, rabbit pie, chicken pot pie and shepherd’s pie. There are many sandwich recipes too, for things like bacon cheeseburgers, puller pork sandwiches and more. The Brid’s Foods mod is just packed full of foods, with dozens of new things to eat.


But again, even if all of the new food items look great and make the Bird’s Foods mod appear to have a great deal of versatility, in the end it all comes down to the same hunger points and slow health regeneration. None of these foods add any special properties to the player, so you won’t have burgers that make you run faster or fish and chips which allow you to breathe underwater. Like many other food mods, this one is a lot of fun to look at but completely and totally unnecessary in the grand scheme of things.

  1. Hey, thanks for spreading the word about my mod! I never expected it to get any attention like this. I noticed a lot of people were still downloading the previous version of the mod though, which had a small mistake, so for those who have noticed an issue with beetroot recipes, it should be fixed in the newest version!

    Also, just a small note: there actually are some foods that give extra effects like health boosts, or clear negative status effects. All alcoholic drinks, for instance, grant a different potion effect for a short time. It’s not a big deal, since the mod is first and foremost about providing a bigger variety of foods, but I just wanted to clarify that it’s not JUST about the hunger points. Cheers!
