Fruit & Vegetable Costumes for Kids

Among these costumes for kids, I’ve got most major food groups covered! Here are the best outfits for kids in the fruit and vegetable category.

(Is it just me, or does it sound like I’m announcing an Oscar winner?)

1. Sweet Corn Baby Costume

I can’t imagine the cuteness that abounds when a baby is placed inside this incredible knitted corn costume! I would definitely dress up as a farmer to carry around my little kernel.

2. Ear of Corn Kids Costume

If your little ear of corn is more “mature,” you can opt for this costume that fits older kids.

3. Baby Halloween Costume – Pineapple

This crocheted costume is the sweetest pineapple I’ve ever seen!

4. Lemon Kids Costume

For older kids, you can opt for this number. Love the giant hands! Doesn’t this remind you of the old Fruit of the Loom commercials?

5. Peas in a Pod Kids Costume

I can’t decide which vegetable costume I love the most. This one definitely caught my eye.

If you’re planning to have one kid show up as a vegetable, you really do need to coordinate some other side veggies. These costumes are beginning to be part of a bigger story (or pun).

6. Carrot Kids Costume

I love this simple but charming carrot costume. When paired with other mixed vegetable costumes, oh the fun kids (or at least parents) will have!

7. Watermelon Costume

This watermelon costume is one of many adorable food costumes available from this Etsy seller. Go take a look to browse the different options.

This is the sweetest little onesie for your shortcake, and there are other sizes available for older kids as well!

9. Strawberry Girl’s Costume with Headband

The detail on this strawberry headband is impressive! I could imagine a little girl wanting to play dress-up with this head gear all. the. time.

10. Blueberry Fruit Baby Costume

Here’s another “berry” adorable costume for babies. I’d go as a pancake for Halloween to have a blueberry-pancake combo with my child. Can you picture it?

11. Avocado Costume for Kids

I can picture a whole ensemble of related costumes for this little avocado! How about pairing this with chips and salsa? You could create a whole family salad!

12. Banana Kids Costume

The classic banana costume never goes out of style. This costume would pair well with a gorilla partner.

Sweets & Treats Costumes for Kids

Since Halloween is all about treats, I’m throwing in my best costumes for kids in the sugary/non-diet category.

13. Oreo Costume

Oreo has come out with all types of new flavors, but I’m still a fan of the classic black and white variety. How great is this costume with an adorable hat for the “filling”?

14. Cupcake Knitted Baby Costume

Speaking of cupcakes, I can’t get over the detail on this knitted cupcake costume. I could see a baby wearing this for a photo shoot or first birthday, not just Halloween!

15. Cupcake Knitted Newborn Hats

16. Marshmallow Man Kids Costume

This little marshmallow cracks me up! If you have several kids needing costumes, you could create a whole Ghostbusters theme and include this costume for your little one. 

17. Tootsie Roll Kids Costume

When I was a kid, I always felt that Tootsie Rolls were like the filler candy to give the impression of abundance when what you really wanted was more Milky Ways, Snickers or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Am I right?

That said, this costume does make me nostalgic and looks super cute.

18. Peanut Butter & Jelly Kids Costume

Who doesn’t love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich? This has to be one of the best combos for twins out there!

19. Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie Costumes

I don’t know which I like better…this milk and cookie duo or the PB&J!

Noodle and Sushi Costumes for Kids

These noodle and sushi costumes will have you roll-ing (pun intended)! Chopsticks are not required but encouraged. These are among the best costume ideas for kids in any food category!

20. Ramen Noodle Costumes

How about a Nissin foods-inspired costume for a baby boy or baby girl? This is some top ramen merchandise!

21. Sushi Long-sleeve Infant Costume

Don’t you love this long-sleeved sushi number? This is the cutest piece of sushi I think I’ve ever seen! Look at the wasabi and ginger on the headband!

What kid doesn’t love pizza? I’m on the hunt for a soda costume to complete the look.

32. Taco Kids Costume

Let’s not leave the beloved taco out of this fast food line-up. (I’m really restraining myself from making more food puns here.)

33. Popcorn Kids Costume

This food costume reminds me of the intro reel at movie theatres with the dancing concessions. All we’re missing is a giant cola and a box of Raisinets!

If you had culinary costumes on the brain, I hope you’ve found all the inspiration you need! Your kids will really appreciate the awesome costume someday (or really resent you for dressing them up as food…one or the other).

Pin it for later!
