Because it isn't "need to", but "have to". They should be interchangeable (as they are in English) but Duolingo lessons are strict on the exact wording sometimes. Report it if you see it again while doing the lesson, and say that.

Why isn't it "Tengas que comer algo?" (Since this seems to be a command)
