Default Never once do you see Neytiri eating.

Ever. It's just... not there! I just started thinking about it and thought, "What would it look like when she eats?" I mean, we all saw her drink that bit of rainwater from the leaf, but that was it.

This may not seem like a topic that can really go far, as far as discussions go, but I just wanted to put that out there. Perhaps we'll see her eat in the deleted dance scene? Or elsewhere? Maybe in the sequel... I dunno. I just thought this an interesting fact.

What would it look like when she eats?

Probably an attractive blue woman eating.

Well, you don't really see them do alot of things,

I can only assume that Neytiri goes off screen & gets some grub when she brings Jake into the camp bit & he tells them not to get up.

Seeing them just sitting around having a snack might be a bit too much of a filler & would probably be edited out on a film this long, theres alot that's just left to your imagination - which I kinda like.

There are three false statements there.

1. Neytiri is not attractive, she is a goddess.
2. Neytiri is not blue, blue is Neytiri.
3. She would not be eating, she would be crushing our hearts.

Well, neither do we see Jake eating in his Avatar, nor any of the Na’vi for that matter. There was one scene in the original script that was cut from the theatrical release that had the Na’vi eating communally near the cooking fires. That was right after the scene where Neytiri brings Jake higher up in Hometree for the first time dressed in native clothes. There was also the infamous drinking scene (also cut) when the Na’vi had the gathering to celebrate a very successful sturmbeest hunt. That might also show Na’vi eating. I really hope those are eventually added back into an extended theatrical release. I would unhesitatingly go right back to the cinema just to see that!

Neytiri gains nourishment from our lust for her, she no longer needs to eat.

Rememeber that part when Jake runs out of the lab in his avatar for the first time, then Grace tosses him that fruit and he takes a big bite? I think she'd look like that, but more dainty and lady-like.

But in all honesty, she'd probably be squatting when eating like the rest of the Na'vi
I am gonna get some hate for this

you see a few of the Na'vi eating in the scene around the fire after Jake is wearing Na'vi clothes for the first time. Also, there is an extended version of that scene that I saw in the script that I hope will be on the special edition DVD. I'm sure she eats like anyone else would, it might not be ladylike either lol.

You never see any CGI character in this film take a bite except Seze, and she doesn't exactly take a bite. When Jake eats the fruit Grace throws him, his mouth is completely hidden by the fruit. Reason? I'm guessing it has to do with the phantasmagorical complexity of trying to render all those interfacing, malleable, and flowing surfaces in 3D animation-land. You see Tsu'tey chewing at the first hometree fire (with his mouth open, LOL!) but you never see anyone take a bite.
