Food are items in the Kirby series. They will appear across every stage. When a player collects them, they will lose damage. Food appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series with the same role.
In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, collecting as much food as possible is the object of the mode, "Gourmet Race". Winning each race against King Dedede also counts as earning points. Also in Kirby Super Star Ultra, there is a mini-game known as "Snack Tracks", in which Kirby must collect as much food as possible.
