Halloween Costumes for your FOOD!

October 25, 2022 by Emily Moore

Playing (dress-up) with Your Food

  • What are ghosts' favorites food? BOOberries
  • What do witches put on their bagels? SCREAM cheese!
  • What do skeletons serve at dinner parties? SPARE RIBS!

Research tells us that letting kids play with their food is good for them. We also know that having more positive exposures and experiences with a new food helps kids – even reluctant ones – feel more comfortable, curious, and open-minded about it. 

With this in mind, and in the SPIRIT of Halloween, we’ve assembled some of our favorite dress-up ideas for food below. So whether you’re hosting a Halloween party, or just looking to jazz up October lunches, we’ve got sweets, meats, and savory treats to recommend (plus some super easy “costumes” for fruits and veggies!). 

Savory Treats
Fruit & Vegetables  
Last but not least, our Sticky Fingers Cooking Halloween food costume recipe... and TikToks!

What’s more fun than playing with your food?! Bruschetta is a blank canvas. Toast the bread and pile it high with any combination of sweet and savory ingredients. They can also be relatively healthy to counteract all that Halloween candy. Kid chefs will use some of the same ingredients for their bruschetta toppings as their salads and delight in creating their bubbly sodas like mad scientists! How did we make those sodas bubble?

Halloween food TikToks:

Now that you’ve got your food’s costume figured out, what food might your kid be for Halloween???
