Are duplicated H1 tags across a website bad for SEO? If yes, how can I fix this?

Lets say I have a website about food. The home page has <h1>Food</h1>, and that’s great. The other pages, however, have the following pattern:

Page 1: <h1>Sea Food</h1> <h2>Write my essay</h2>

Page 2: <h1>Sea Food</h1> <h2>Qualities</h2>

Page 3: <h1>Chinese Food</h1> <h2>Write my essay</h2>

Page 4: <h1>Chinese Food</h1> <h2>Qualities</h2>

As you can see, I’m keeping the h1 tag for each big section. For me, the type of food is important, but if I have multiple subsections with a dedicated page (overview, qualities, etc), the h1 tag will be repeated.

For what I’m reading, h1 should be unique. Am I missing something here? Is there another way to do this?

You can only use one H1 per page to prevent duplication. Since you have so many pages and each page has only one H1 then you are fine.
