If you have two objects called Mouth with a object Food to the left of it
(on same Y), then you can try:
script: swallow1
   Test Food's x > Mouth's x
        Yes: Food's x decrease by 1
        No: stop script swallow1
            do message1

You could also experiment with "turn toward" and forward tiles to move Food
towards Mouth.

script: message1
   Message1 show
   start script delay1min

For creating a 1-minute delay, paint an object called timer and use the
script delay1min (set tick rate to one per second)
   timer's heading increase by 1
   Test timer's heading < 60
        Yes: timer's heading <- 0
             stop script delay1min
             start script swallow2

Use scalefactor tile to reduce size:
  Food's scalefactor decrease by 0.1
