This question already has an answer here:

In this pattern: Vばいいのに. (literally, it would be good if you ~).

What conjugation of verb should I use here?

Is this correct: お腹空いた時、お食事を食べればいいのに。?

Good for use of "ばいいのに"! "お食事" is not for eating, stands for breakfast, lunch, dinner ... and Japanese will says as follows お腹空いた時、何か食べればいいのに。 "何か" is something.
