No mod no CC.if you can do somethng thank you.

Hmmm. This is happening on any lot. Even outside of a restaurant.

My toddler seems to stop eating half way though their food. I have pictures to show, and as you can see, the toddler was hungry, so i gave her pancakes, she began to eat them and her hunger was almost full, but then the interaction gets cancelled for no reason. This is rather annoying, and they also do the same in highchairs.

I’ve been having this issue for months with sims of all ages. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the hunger bar not being low enough to constitute a full meal, to avoid overeating, but my tots only eat until their hunger bar is in the green then put the food down, unless maybe if they’re fed in the highchair.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Ok, well Its not something I can trigger. There are four different bugs that have all started since the logo refresh a couple (last?) month. 1) sim will randomly disappear and reappear in selected location 2) Sim will constantly spin when getting out of the shower when an action is queued straight afterwards. Especially when you tell them to socailise. 3) cook a meal. 
What happens when the bug occurs? 1) sim will randomly disappear and reappear in selected location, rather than walking there. 2) Sim will constantly spin when getting out of the shower. This happens in all of my saved games. 3) Sims refuse to eat a whole meal, and will quite often start then put it down before their bars are full.
What do you expect to see? 1) sims should not be able to teleport 2) Get out of the shower, and get dressed. 3) eat whole meal until they are full.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. When the logo refresh happened a couple of months ago, thats when these bugs started to happen.

I had thought that maybe it was my legacy family save bugging out so I started a new one, the bugs appeared again.

I'm not sure when this exactly started, cause I haven't played with toddlers a lot and when I do I usually use a high chair. I'm playing the 100 baby challenge and high chairs are a hassle for that, so I noticed this. I'm not sure if this is occurring with high chairs, too, but I did noticed in another save that my toddlers were ALWAYS pushing the food off the high chair about half way through, regardless of traits/hunger/etc.

This is still happening in my game even after the latest update, but not quite as bad. All

my Sims start eating, eat until the Hunger bar turns green, but before the bar fills up, they stop even if they haven’t finished the plate.

 

it really disturbs me. It’s so wasteful and my Sims get hungry so fast.

This is what I've discovered with my toddlers and eating:

1. If there are blocks in the room, the toddlers will be distracted by these blocks and not eat.

2. If their hygiene, energy, or bladder is in the yellow or red, they will eat enough to bring their hunger to green and not enough to fill it all the way.

3. They will eat to full if there are no blocks and their other needs are green.

 

The blocks portion seems buggy. I don't know if the other bits (other needs being yellow or red) are design choices.
