Isn't "Я теж їсти хочу" also grammatically correct?

It is, and it's usage is not SO seldom to claim that it's not added just not to confuse the learners. I added it, now it's accepted, thanks!

Uh. Well, I found one more and updated. Maybe there are more, but I don't see them for now.

I thought position didn't matter in Ukrainian. I put "Я хочу теж їсти" and got it wrong. Why?

Not any word order sounds natural. Some do make one sound like Yoda :) E.g. "Я їсти хочу теж" sounds weird as well.

I would say this one sounds awkward and unnatural because of the placement of теж, between хочу and їсти.
