The term Food is related to consumable items in Valheim.

The player is able to consume 3 different types of food at a time, and stack buffs from each food item. The buff strength decreases uniformly until it vanishes when the food is fully digested. Food buffs have variable durations; move your crosshair over the food to view how much health/stamina a specific food item will provide, as well as how long the effects will last. The player cannot eat more than one of the same type of food before the the previously consumed food item is partially digested (half the standard time - indicated by the food item blinking, visually represented in the lower left of the screen).

Starvation is not possible in Valheim, but food provides valuable buffs to a player's health, stamina, and regeneration rate. You can't "replace" what you have already eaten until the food you previously consumed has at least partially digested. Attempt to balance the three types of food you consume based on the activities you are performing. For example, consume food items with higher stamina buffs during exploration or resource gathering, and eat food items that give higher health and health regeneration for dungeons and boss fights.

Best Meadows-level Food

Arguably the best mix of Meadows food items for maximum longevity and buff strength are as follows:

  1. Cooked meat
  2. Grilled neck tail
  3. Honey

Best Black Forest-level Food

Arguably the best mix of Black Forest and Meadows food items for maximum longevity and buff strength are as follows:

  1. Serpent stew and Cooked serpent meat (overkill but technically obtainable this early)
  2. Cooked fish
  3. Cooked meat
  4. Carrot soup
  5. Queens jam
  6. Grilled neck tail

Best Swamp/Mountain-level Food

Arguably the best mix of food items available once you reach the swamp for maximum longevity and buff strength are as follows:

  1. Serpent stew and Cooked serpent meat
  2. Sausages
  3. Turnip stew
  4. Cooked fish
  5. Cooked meat

The Mountain biome does not provide any additional food options.

Best Plains-level Food

Arguably the best mix food items, once you reach the plains, for maximum longevity and buff strength are as follows:

  1. Lox meat pie
  2. Serpent stew
  3. Blood pudding or Fish wraps

For the highest health: eat Blood pudding, Lox meat pie and Serpent stew. This provides an initial bonus of 250 health and 210 stamina, decaying over 40 minutes.

For the highest stamina (and overall stats): eat Fish wraps, Lox meat pie and Serpent stew. This provides an initial bonus of 220 health and 250 stamina, decaying over 40 minutes.
