How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I tried restarting the game, giving toddlers different plates of food.
What happens when the bug occurs? When my toddler gets a plate of food, they do not eat it and their hunger bar does not go up.
What do you expect to see? Toddlers should eat until their hunger bar is full.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

Re: Sims/Toddlers Not Eating

Toddlers will now eat the food your Sims have prepared for them. My mom used to say when my siblings and I were children that “this is not a restaurant, you eat what I cook for you all” so yeah… a lot of times I saw my sister stay at the table until she finished all her veggies… her nemesis was spinach. Bet my Mom wishes she had this fix… yup!

Fixed in Patch 1.72.28/ 1.39

@alexishp23 Tested this and mine works fine.

Could you test another toddler/save to see if you have the same issue there ?

I'm having the same issue. It was in a household that I was playing before the 11/10 patch. The toddler grabbed a plate of food, sat in a chair, and just held the plate... no eating animations and the hunger meter didn't go up. I canceled the action and had an adult put the toddler in the highchair, gave toddler the same plate of food (herb incrusted salmon) and the toddler wouldn't couldn't eat. Had the adult Sim pick up the plate of food and tried the "give food" interaction on the highchair... the adult placed the bowl of cereal on the highchair tray and the toddler DID eat. 

 

So I'm wondering if its something with food that Sims have prepared?

I am having this issue as well. Not the first time feeding them since the update a few hours ago, but now I have two VERY hungry toddlers who just sit there holding the plate of food and occasionally waft their hands near it like they're smelling it. They've eaten this meal before (chicken stir fry). I even tried doing a reset sim on one of them and it did not fix it. I tell them to eat, they pick up their plates, climb up on the couch, and...just sit their holding their food. I'm worried if this goes on longer my kids will be taken away.

I will test it on other households. And report back.

Okay, this is kinda strange but I just checked another save file family (with 3 toddlers) and all 3 toddlers were able to pick up and eat cooked food. Not only that but an adult Sim was able to use an open staircase with fencing at the top (I know that is an issue on a different thread, but I just happened to notice the adult Sim using the stairs.

 

I dragged a group serving onto a coffee table and all 3 toddlers picked up a plate, climbed onto the sofa, and started eating. Their hunger bars went up as you would expect. The only differences are: 

1. The household with non-eating toddler is on a residential lot in Evergreen Harbor. There is a highchair on the lot.

2. The household with normal toddlers is an apartment lot in San Myshuno. There are no highchairs on the lot.

@crinrict I've created a new family to see if it happens again. I'll also upload my original glitched family to my library and try it on a new save.

@crinrictUpdate: playing both families in the islands with mermaid sims. Wink The toddlers in the new family (both created in CAS) ate their first meal of eggs and toast just fine. So, I switched back to my original family.
I tried changing one of the glitched toddlers to a breakfast scramble, and she's now eating just fine, but it was a partial plate and only brought her to half full. Unfortunately it was my last breakfast scramble...now they also refuse to eat new plates of garlic noodles, and I've been having the issue with sims (toddler, child, adult) refusing to eat partial plates of leftovers of most things 90% of the time. (sit down, and the eat action just cancels on it's own and they walk away to set the plate back on a random table)
Now having my merman cook a new meal of gumbo, since they've eaten that before the patch.
I've also uploaded the Edwards family to the Gallery if you care to take a look. Merman, human wife, 2 half mer kids, 2 toddlers (one mer/alien) and a mer/alien infant.
I do not use Mods or CC of any kind. I did download the lot I'm playing from the Gallery, but created the young adults in CAS and spawned the family "naturally". Wink  I also loath high chairs, so I don't ever purchase them.
