Baby food taste game

How to Play "Name that Baby Food" Baby Shower Game

Name that baby food is an awesome baby shower game that requires some set-up, but is totally worth it! In this baby shower game, your guests will taste different selections of baby food and try to guess what it is. The person with the most baby food friendly palate wins the game.


  • Jarred Baby Food - 6-12 flavors
  • Wastebasket
  • Container - where guests can put their completed answer sheets
  • Permanent marker / pens / pencils
  • Paper to cover the jar labels
  • Answer Sheets - these can be blank or pre-numbered so guests will just write their guesses about the flavors that correspond with the number
  • Tasting utensils - plastic spoons or popsicle sticks (enough so that guests don't reuse the utensil for each flavor)

Prepping for Name that Baby Food Baby Shower Game

To prepare for this game, you will need to purchase some baby food jars in advance. To keep the game fair and simple, it's best to choose baby food jars that only contain one type of fruit or vegetable.

There are a lot of combo flavors (like apples and bananas or mangos and pears, etc...), but that may really stump your players, so just sticking to one ingredient per jar is best.

To keep things interesting, you may look for baby food that look somewhat alike - it's tricky but not too tricky. For examples, apple baby food and pear baby food may look very similar in consistency and color, so that might be a good choice for a couple of flavors. Carrots and sweet potatoes also look similar, so that could also be a nice couple of flavors that you can choose.

Once you have the baby food jars purchased, make a note of which flavors are in which jars (you'll need to know this for the answer key as the labels will be removed). A quick numbered list with the flavor and numbering the bottom of jar with a permanent marker can be a quick way to keep track.

Once you have the baby jar flavors noted, you can take off the wrapper (or you can always cover the wrapper with some patterned baby to hide the flavor). If you choose to take off the wrapper, there might be a little bit of adhesive left, so you might need some adhesive remover to get those last bits of stickiness off.

Now with your "naked" jars, you can number them with a permanent marker or get some colorful construction paper and make a new label for the jar with just the number.

For the game, your guests will get a blank numbered piece of paper and they will write their guesses that correspond to the number on the jar.

Baby Shower Game Set-up

To set-up the game, you will need some space where you can put out all the materials - jars of food, game sheets, pens, popsicle/spoons, wastebasket, etc... You should opt for a dedicated space so the stuff doesn't get mixed up with other things. A small table or countertop should be fine.

How to Play Name that Baby Food

There are a couple of ways that you can play the game. You can have the game be passive, meaning the guests can play it throughout the baby shower event and drop their answer sheets in a container and you can tally up the correct answers later and announce the winner. Or you can make the game a main event and ask for volunteers to play while the rest of the guests become the audience.

If you choose to play the game passively, you might consider having the instructions out on display so guests know what it's all about - the last thing you want is guests thinking you're serving appetizers! 

If you are expecting guests of all ages to attend, then you might think twice about letting the game be passive - depending on the age of the kids, they may not quite understand the game and the results could be...messy.

The other way to play this game allows for everyone to enjoy the action. You'll need to carve out some time to play the game during the event. At the time, you can ask for volunteers who want to play - not everyone will feel comfortable tasting baby food in front of an audience, so asking for volunteer players will just make things easier. 

Once you have the volunteers, have each of them taste one baby food at a time, then write down their guess. When they've had a chance to taste each one, you can announce the type of food, the person with the most correct wins!

It may be more fun to play this game with an audience as everyone will be able to see the reactions of the players as they taste those mushy peas and squashed carrots. It will also be fun to announce the winner right away.

Baby Shower Game Prizes

For this game, you may want to prepare a few prizes just in case you have a tie. As the game is all about food (albeit baby food), it might be fun to have your prizes be food-related too.

Here are some food prize ideas that you might consider:

  • Homemade Jars of Jam: If you love canning, then consider making some special treats for your winners. A cute label "Adult Food: Apricot Jam" or something that ties the prize back to the game can be a clever and memorable baby shower game prize. If you're not into making jam, then buying a few fun flavors and relabeling them with cute labels is an option.
  • Mason Jar Recipe Kits: A recipe in a jar prize is always fun and can be a play on the baby food jars. There are tons of recipe in a jar kits you can find online and if you think you might have more than one winner, then this is an easy prize to duplicate.
  • Food Cooking Kits: As this baby shower game is all about flavor, consider some food kits for your winners so they can add more flavor to their next dish! A collection of exotic salts, a variety pack of BBQ sauces or salsas. Some nice oils or spice mixes can also work.
  • DIY Food Gift Basket: A little themed food gift basket is another option. A small container filled with goodies for a movie night, breakfast in bed, or a picnic would make a great baby shower prize.

5 games you can make yourself

Reviewer Kovtun Tatiana Anatolievna


September 15, 2021

Now in stores you can find thousands of games for kids - for every taste, interest and budget. If you wish and have financial opportunities, you can buy new ones at least every week. But how much more interesting to make the game with the baby! After all, the process of creation is already a real game! But for children under three years of age, the process is much more important than the result: the time when they begin to appreciate achievements has not yet come. In addition, there is nothing better for a dark autumn evening than to do something simple with your own hands from the comfort of your home and involve all family members in this.

Well, are we interested in you? Want to try making your own game? Then catch our ideas and instructions for their implementation.


Oddly enough, but to find the good old walker games in which you need to throw a die on the playing field and take a certain number of steps with chips, you will not find it today with fire. Well, it is not necessary! We will do it ourselves.

You will need:

  • cardboard sheet;
  • pencils, paints, markers;
  • plasticine;
  • children's magazines;
  • stencils, stamps.

We take a sheet of thick paper or large format cardboard and come up with a story. Together with the baby we make a background: the sky with clouds, forests, meadows with flowers. With older children, you can imagine a whole fairy-tale world using your favorite characters from books and cartoons, with the help of stickers and clippings from children's magazines.

After this preparatory stage, the most interesting thing begins: the baby can “tread” the paths on his own, along which we will walk in the future. We take a ready-made stamp or cut our own out of a small potato, cut out of a sponge, paint and put prints! The more labyrinth tracks, the better. In the process, you can master the score by numbering and counting the moves. We sculpt figures from plasticine and start playing!


You can make a lot of options for these games with your baby! You can make figurines with leaf prints or patterns from puff pastry using cookie cutters, you can make memorials from pebbles by painting them in different colors, or you can use bottle caps with stickers on the back of which to stick.


It is still difficult for a kid to draw tic-tac-toe, but do you want to teach him to play right now? No problem! We take the pebbles and draw the necessary shapes on them with an indelible marker. You can replace the crosses and zeros with squares and triangles to learn geometric shapes, or even replace the shapes with colors. The field for the game can be made from a sheet of cardboard or paper: you can draw it with a wide marker. To add volume to the game, instead of lines, you can “pave” stripes with colored tape.


How about making dominoes out of popsicle sticks? We just paint the ends of the sticks in different colors, just make sure that there are always pairs, and that there are 28 “chips” in total. If the child is already big, and you and he have mastered quantitative counting, you can make pebble dominoes together. We paint in bright colors with acrylic paint, and then the kid puts the required number of dots with a contrasting color paint using a cotton swab, only with your tips, of course.


This game is the easiest to make, especially for the smallest and most impatient players. We take the baby’s favorite picture, stick it on a dense base - for example, on the wall of a cardboard shoe box - and simply cut it into 2-4 parts. And older children will surely enjoy the puzzle from their own photographs.

As you can see, there are a lot of options for games that you can make with your children with your own hands. Table billiards from cups in the corners and paper balls, labyrinths from scotch tape and cocktail tubes, checkers from buttons and even games with caps from Frutonyanya baby food. Fantasize, create and play, but only, mind you, always with children!
