Promote healthy foods with fun kids and parents costumes

Getting your child excited about healthy foods can sometimes require a little creativity and imagination!fun food costumes for kids

I am always looking for fun new ways to get kids excited about fruits and vegetables.  Those are the two food groups that most kids do not eat enough of.  Actually, most of us! :-)

Well, fruit and vegetable costumes can be a very creative and interactive way to get kids curious about these healthy foods.

My little grandniece used to eat all kinds of fruits  when she was little, but now that she has started school, she doesn't want to eat them.   So I was really looking for  a fun way to get her interested in fruits again.

I found a great website called that has a large selection of costumes and not just for Halloween.  I had never thought about costumes before except for Halloween but they offer costumes for all different types of occasions and themes.

So I ordered an adult and child banana costume.  When she came over to visit, I told her all about how fun fruits were but she wasn't really interested.  But she was very surprised when my son came out of the bedroom dressed as a Banana.  I told her  that he wanted to be fun like a fruit so he was going to be a fruit for a day.  She thought

we were being very silly and laughed but soon she wanted to be a fruit too!  So I gave her a costume too and she couldn't wait to put it on.

We had so much fun and laughed and sang about how fun it was to be a delicious fruit.  Then after dinner, I offered her some fruit for desert and she was giggling while she said yes.

I was so thankful to find and get a matching adult and child fruit costume.  Now I am set for Halloween too!
