if you eat a variaty of different foods, your yum bonus will go up. with a higher yum bonus you wont get hungry as quickly

i played 3 years but never used it.

This has been discussed many times in the forums so rather than explain, I’ll give you links to a couple of posts

Yum bonus also makes it more likely that the next baby will be birthed to you, doesn’t it?

i think it is only the pine needle tea doing that.

Yum bonus makes it so you don’t have to eat for longer. I got a Yum bonus of 15 and didn’t have to eat for a while. Basically it’s extra hunger bars added.
