Starfield Nutrition skill overview

The Starfield Nutrition skill is a tier 2 skill in the Physical skill tree. It, as with all Starfield skills, has 4 ranks, beginning at rank 1 and ending at rank 4. In order to progress up the Nutrition skill tree, you will need to complete various skill challenges related to the skill in question, and increase your Starfield level to earn skill points. Each rank requires a skill point to unlock.

This skill improves the effectiveness of food and drink items, with the amount of effectiveness increasing as this skill is ranked up.

Food and drink items can be a great way to heal or gain stat boosts, meaning this skill can be useful to buff any stat boosts you receive from food and drink, or simply if you wish to gain more HP.
