So my Sims would autonomously eat the single meals but not the group meals that were separated Thinking If there were no single meals in the fridge, they would either cook something or eat a quick meal.

I'm having this exact problem. My sims will refuse to eat any prepared food autonomously, and also sometimes with ordered food.

There seem to be 2 different things going on:

  1. Sims cook something for themselves, then abandon the cooked food without finishing the meal and start cooking something else.
  2. Sims not using the already prepared food that is in the fridge and either cooking (Teens and older) or getting a quick meal (children) from the fridge instead.

I've seen both issues. The first one happens occasionally, but the second one happens consistently all the time. I pretty much have to actively make Sims to "Get Leftovers" for them to eat the already cooked food, which is a lot with a 6-8 person household.

Sims wasting food

★★ Novice


Ok I can't even any more.

This annoys me recently playing any household. Goth's and my own made (I have plans for the two households)

Anyway....the sims makes dinner all the time they are hungry. But get this.


Even with servings left out for them to take they just...nope not gonna have that, I am gonna make something else and just leaves out good food.

I have experince this particular after the latest update. The crashes are gone (I think I jinxied it)

I can get sims to be called to the meal, but thats just it. Other then that making huge stacks of food they can take from fridge just does not work.

I really do not know what to do. ARGH
