I don't have automatic patching turned on and initiate patches manually. I had played a couple of hours on I think Wednesday and then patched before I left the computer, which caused the same issue on PC. So whatever day the last patch is did it, not anything you bought and installed. I have hardly any expansions or content packs and my sim is on a grilled cheese marathon of epic proportions.
This only started happening for me in the last few days.

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 126.96.36.1990
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? wait for sim to autonomously cook when hungry
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims autonomously cook food when they're hungry but rarely eat it and just continue to make new foods. They eat when I make them cook food and they eat when i tell them to grab a serving, but they will not autonomously eat their own cooked food. (this does not happen every time but about 90% of the time it does)
What do you expect to see? sims to eat food they have autonomously cook to satisfy their hunger need
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

I can confirm that this is happening ALL the time. Sims cook food, leave it on the counter. Cook more food - leave it on the counter. Go to fridge (which has platters of leftovers) and get cereal or yogurt and eat that. If I SPECIFICALLY get them to eat leftovers, they will. But won't do it on their own when hungry. If I TELL them to cook a specific food, they seem to cook it and then take it and eat it, although I haven't experimented extensively with this. It's doing it *autonomously* that's broken in the game.
This has been happening for me for months and months. I recall it started happening RIGHT after an update, which clearly broke the game for that aspect. I have no doubt of that. Prior to that, Sims would cook or grill either their own meals or create platters etc. Any left overs would automatically be put away, and when Sims were hungry, they would deplete the leftovers until gone, all on their own, before preparing more food.
I sent my sim on vacation with another sim, in the rental house, I could see that the other sim cooked several dishes and never ate them, until my sim cooked something and called him to eat. The truth is that I do not know when this error started, I play with a single sim and I have the autonomy deactivated, so I could see it when sharing a house with another sim on vacation.
I hadn't played in a while. I had been on an Assassin's Creed kick and recently finished it. (Yeah, it took me 4 months lol). There has been no word from the team on this since Nov 10?
