At the moment of writing, the latest Minecraft update is 1.19, and frogs can eat only two creatures:

  • Small Slimes
  • Small Magma Cubes

In addition to mobs, Frogs can eat Slimeballs, which is one of the widespread items in Minecraft.

Take into account that developers planned to add Fireflies in the 1.19 update as additional food for frogs. But they scrapped the idea for an indefinite period. Therefore, we still don’t know if Fireflies will be the new food for Frogs in the upcoming update. And below, you can learn more about all Frogs’ food in Minecraft 1.19.


Slimeballs are the only Minecraft item that can be used as forage for Frogs. The most straightforward way to get Slimeballs is to kill the tiny slimes. But there are also two alternative options to get Slimeballs in Minecraft.

Slimeballs can also be spawned while baby pandas sneeze. Also, every time a frog eats a slime, it generates a slimeball. The disadvantage is that both these occurrences are very rare. Therefore, it would be best to opt for more reliable ways of getting Slimeballs.

Small Slimes

Small Slimes can be spawned in swamp biomes at night. They are known as one of the nastiest monsters in Minecraft. Even though they can't boast significant damage, a group of Small Slimes can kill you even when you're wearing powerful armour.

And if you want to deal with Small Slimes effectively, feel free to spawn frogs near you. They will kill all the Slimes in a few seconds, allowing you to play the game without tiny creatures next to your feet.

Small Magma Cubes

Small Magma Cubes are the only Nether monsters frogs can eat. Small Magma Cubes work like Small Slimes: they are spawned if their larger shape is killed. The only issue is that frogs cannot spawn in the Nether biomes.

Three types of frogs in minecraft


There are two biomes in which you can find frogs in Minecraft: Swamp and Mangrove Swamp. Also, you need to take into account that Warm and Cold Frogs cannot spawn naturally in Overworld. They can be obtained by breeding different types of frogs.

That’s it with frogs in Minecraft. As you can see, frogs can eat only two creatures: Small Slimes and Small Magma Cubes. Also, Slimeballs are a perfect choice if you want to feed frogs manually. And if you are looking for more content, then be sure to check out our guide on how to make a cake in Minecraft.
