Minecraft – Do villagers lose food every time they enter breeding mode

minecraft-java-edition

Do they lose food every time they enter breeding mode? Or do they only lose food the first time they notice they are willing to breed (correct conditions but not in breeding mode yet)

Best Answer

From the Wiki

Villagers will consume the required food upon becoming willing.

This means that when a Villager becomes "willing" to breed, they will consume the food required to breed, not upon breeding.
