How Food Stamina Health Interact Valheim Guide
Game: Valheim
Content Type: Gaming Guides


Some of the mechanics in Valheim are fairly opaque, and the way food interacts with your Health and Stamina is definitely one of them. In this guide, we’ll give you a brief overview of how these three systems work together, and provide a handy food chart that lists all the known foods and their effects.

Note: This guide is a work in progress. New information will be added as it becomes available. 

Staying alive is pretty important, and therefore your health bar is something you should become intimately familiar with. You have 25 health by default, and you increase your maximum health by eating foods. You can only eat (or really, digest) 3 types of food at a time, so the higher quality foods you choose, the higher your maximum health will be. See the list below to find which foods give you the most health.

Your most important resource in combat (besides your life) is your stamina. The yellow bar at the bottom of your screen displays your stamina. The bar will only appear when your stamina isn’t full, and running, jumping, blocking, attacking, or drawing back your bowstring will all deplete your stamina. Your maximum stamina is tied to the foods you’ve eaten just like your health is.

The positive effects of food are temporary. Before the full duration of the food runs out, you’ll see the food icon begin to flash next to your health bar, and the max health and stamina you gained from the food will slowly tick down.

Meads are Valheim’s potions, and can grant healing and stamina, as well as health and stamina regen buffs and debuffs. In order to create mead, you’ll need to craft a cauldron and a fermenter. Don’t forget your tankard!
