Though the Mandalorians cannot take their helmets off in front of each other, they do split up and take their helmets off separately to eat.
The first thing that many fans knew about the Children of the Watch when they started watching The Mandalorian was that the Mandalorians are not allowed to remove their helmets.
However, Din Djarin revealed to Bo-Katan that they can remove their helmets to eat as long as they cannot see each other’s faces.
The Mandalorian: How do the Mandalorians eat?
Though it is by no means a newly-established fact that the Mandalorians in Disney+’s The Mandalorian, who subscribe to the “old ways” cannot take off their helmets, the recently released “Chapter 20 – The Foundling” episode has given fans some much-needed insight into how this all works.
Since the Mandalorians cannot remove their helmets or show their faces to other human beings, fan theory on how the Children of the Watch complete a simple task such as eating has ranged from a specialised eating hole to a primarily liquid diet.
But fortunately, The Mandalorian has now clarified that the Mandalorians eat just like any other humans, as long as they are on their own.
In this episode Din Djarin tells Bo-Katan that after the Mandalorians receive their rations, they all go off on their own so that they can take their helmets off to eat without risking being seen by other humans.
