Deer mice are omnivorous. They eat a wide variety of plant and animal matter depending on what is available, including Insecta and other invertebrates, seeds, fruits, flowers, nuts, and other plant products. Deer mice sometimes eat their own feces, a practice called coprophagy. In cooler climates, deer mice hide food in secret stockpiles during the autumn months.
