Eat ‘Em Up: Food-Related Halloween Costumes for Baby

When it comes to Halloween, I have, well … a bizarre love of food-related fun. And with a last name like Heinz, I couldn’t help but dig myself into a deep costume-making hole when my first baby was able to walk. My mother-in-law, husband, and I were determined to make the greatest ketchup bottle known to baby-kind. And we did. But the kid refused to wear it. (Which didn’t stop us from trying to bring it back year after year—and buying the complementary hamburger, of course.)

Well, it turns out there’s an easier way. I’ve rounded up some of the most fun food-related costumes around.

  • Playing With Our Food
