Why Pals Are Not Eating In Palworld And How To Fix It?

Confused why your Pals aren’t eating anything at all in Palworld? Here’s why this is happening and how you can deal with this problem.

Sometimes in Palworld, you must be wondering why aren’t your Pals eating anything kept in the Feed Box. Well, this can happen due to several reasons and that is why we had to create this guide. We will explain why your Pals are not eating anything and how you can deal with it. Be sure to stick to the end because you probably don’t want to make your Pal starve and fall sick. That said, let’s get started.

Here’s Why your Pal is Not Eating in Palworld

As I said, there are several reasons why your Pals aren’t eating anything at all. Check out below to know about them:

  • Pals are getting stuck due to some object placed on your base
  • A bug is causing this to happen
  • They have low Sanity (SAN) leading to Depression and starvation
  • Feed Box is too far from the Pal

These are some of the most genuine and common reasons why your Pals are not eating anything in Palworld. However, to get them fixed, here’s what you need to do.

How to Fix Pals Not Eating & Getting Sick in Palworld

Considering the reasons mentioned above, we will provide a solution for each one of them. Starting with the first one, where Pals get stuck sometimes on the base. Whenever this happens, you will have to manually move the Pal and drop it near the Feed Box. If it’s hungry, it will start to eat whatever you’ve placed in the box.

Since Palworld is in Early Access, you can expect some bugs to pop up. It is possible that one of those bugs is the reason why your Pals are not responding or heading to the Feed Box to eat anything. In such a situation, you can always leave and rejoin your World. If possible, I suggest you restart the whole game once. This should fix the problem where Pals are not able to eat in Palworld.

Often, it will happen that you will unknowingly neglect a Pal too much. Not taking their care will cause them to lose their Sanity and eventually get Depressed. And let me tell you that a Depressed Pal refuses to eat most of the time. So to fix this, you will have to build a Medieval Medicine Workbench and craft High Grade Medical Supplies. Giving this Medicine to a Pal will cure their Depression and make them well again. Hopefully, the Pal should start eating normally again.

That’s all you can do to make your Pals eat in Palworld, so they don’t fall sick. For more guides like this, feel free to browse through our dedicated section for Palworld Guides on Gamer Tweak.
