Winter is the coldest, and coziest time of year. When preparing food for a winter baby shower, you’ll want to prepare warmer dishes.

You can serve appetizers such as spinach dip, meat balls, and baked brie to keep your guests warm and full!

Prosciutto and Brie on Artisan Crackers

Prosciutto and brie on artisan crackers is a crispy appetizer with a sweetened finish to it.

Artisan crackers are arranged on a plate, and topped with a slice of brie cheese on each of them.

Basil leaves are placed on top of the brie, along with strips of prosciutto that are placed in a folded shape.

A couple sprigs of arugula are placed on top of the prosciutto to complete the base of the appetizer.

Drizzle a bit of honey and balsamic reduction all over the artisan crackers and enjoy!

Meat Balls

Meat balls are a bite sized appetizer that are packed full of savory flavor and sweet sauce.

Sweet and Tangy Asian meat balls are covered in teriyaki sauce for a sweet and savory flavor.

Garnish the meat balls with fresh parsley and sesame seeds.

You can place a toothpick into each meat ball so it isn’t sticky on your fingers.

Baked Brie

Baked brie is made by baking a wheel of brie in the oven with a variety of toppings.

You can add the toppings prior to baking, or after, depending on the flavoring you’re wanting for your appetizer. Baked brie is served with sliced baguette pieces for dipping, crackers, or celery and carrot sticks.

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs look eye catching and are quite filling as an appetizer.

They are made by cooking eggs, and the cutting them in half.

The center portion of the egg is mixed with mayo, diced dill pickles, mustard, pepper and paprika.

The filling is piped back into the white portion of the egg, and garnished with a bit more paprika.

Focaccia Bread with Oil and Balsamic

Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on a plate. It should be a decent size, depending on how many people you’ll be serving for.

Pour balsamic reduction over the olive oil in a zig zag design.

Focaccia bread can be cut into strips, and then in half for a decent serving size.

Dip the bread in the mixture of olive oil and balsamic for a savory bread appetizer.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Spinach and artichoke dip is a creamy, hot dip you can serve with baguette slices, or crackers.

Garlic is cooked in olive oil in a frying pan until it releases its aromas.

Spinach is added to the pan and wilts as it cooks. Once it’s done cooking, remove it from it from the heat source.

Cream cheese is mixed together with sour cream, mayo, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and a little hot sauce.

Cooked spinach is added to the cream cheese mixture along with chopped up artichoke hearts.

Spinach and artichoke dip is placed in a baking dish and baked in the oven for about 20 minutes.

The dip is finished baking when the cheese begins to brown and bubble.

Tea Sandwiches

Tea sandwiches are small sandwiches that are usually served with high tea. They are cut into rectangles or circles to give them a unique shape.

You can make different types of sandwiches for a winter baby shower such as:

  • ham and cheese
  • cucumber and cream cheese
  • egg salad
  • chicken salad
  • tuna salad
  • strawberry, basil and cream cheese


Pinwheels are made by using a tortilla, and spreading the filling over the tortilla in a thin layer.

The pinwheel is made by rolling up the tortilla, and then slicing it into 1/2-3/4″ rounds.

  • Bacon Jalapeno Pinwheels
  • Ranch Cream Cheese Rollups
  • Vegetable Tortilla Roll Ups

Cheese Ball

Make your own easy cheese ball with cream cheese for a delicious savory appetizer.

The cheese ball is made by simply using a hand mixer to whip the cream cheese until light and fluffy.

Add a couple of herbs, spices and cheddar cheese to create the base of the cheese ball.

The next part is very messy!!

Shape the cream cheese into a ball shape, and roll into a plate of chopped up walnuts.

Chill for half an hour to make it firm up again.

Serve your cheese ball by slicing off a bit of it and put it onto a cracker to enjoy!

Cantaloupe and Prosciutto Wraps

Cantaloupe and prosciutto wraps are juicy and savory.

Slice cantaloupe into thin pieces, and then wrap a piece of prosciutto around the cantaloupe.

Drizzle balsamic reduction over the cantaloupe and prosciutto wraps to garnish.

37 Crowd-Pleasing Baby Shower Food Ideas

Planning a baby shower is lots of fun, especially when it comes to brainstorming food ideas.

9 Tips and Ideas for Planning a Baby Shower Menu

When planning a baby shower, you can be as creative as you like with the food ideas, but it’s also important to consider some practical aspects.

As the host, you’ll have a lot to take care of, including decorating the venue, so it’s good to plan food that is quick to make and easy to serve and eat.

Here are some tips to help you think about the types of food to choose, how to serve it, and more:

Savory Baby Shower Food Ideas

Whether you plan on having only finger foods or an entire menu at the baby shower, here are some ideas for the savory food:

Baby Shower Dessert Table Food Ideas

Besides having a baby shower cake as a centerpiece, you may want to have a dessert table with an assortment of other sweet offerings. Here are some ideas for crowd-pleasing sweets and desserts:


Beyond serving the usual wine spritzer or sparkling wine at the baby shower, consider some alcohol-free drinks, like mocktails, punch, and homemade sodas:

The Bottom Line

You’ll no doubt have lots of fun planning and serving the food for the mom-to-be’s baby shower.

If you’ve decided to prepare most of the food, round up some of the mom-to-be’s friends and family to help. Make it easier on yourself by using some store-bought elements, too. You could also make some of what’s on offer but ask each guest to bring a small plate to share.

Set up food and dessert tables so that guests can serve themselves buffet style, and stick to foods that aren’t too messy to eat while standing up and mingling.

If you have a set theme, you can tie the food into the theme by using colored frosting, or by piping lettering onto foods like “Oh, Baby!” Cookie cutters are your friend! Cut everything from brownies to sandwiches into shapes that match the theme. You can also connect the food and drinks to the theme based on the colors you choose for the straws, napkins, and cupcake liners.

Having a chocolate fondue fountain or a soda bar can create an interactive element that guests will love.

Have fun with it! Your options are endless, and you might find you really get into it once you get started. And, always remember, no matter what food and drinks you serve, your guests — especially the guest of honor — will really appreciate your efforts and thoughtfulness.

While you’re here, check out our baby shower checklist to double-check that you’ve covered everything for the upcoming event.

    Additional information

    • Kindergarten students receive food according to the time spent in the institution and the group's working hours. When organizing nutrition, the age-related physiological norms of the daily need for basic nutrients are taken into account. The range of ready-made meals and culinary products offered by the catering unit is determined taking into account the set of premises, the provision of technological, refrigeration equipment.
      Meals in kindergarten are organized in accordance with the "Approximate ten-day menu", developed for two age categories: children from 1 year to 3 years old and for children from 3 to 7 years old (based on the physiological needs of children in nutrients and energy, in accordance with with the current SanPiN). An approximate ten-day menu is compiled according to the days of the week (for 10 days)
      When compiling an approximate ten-day menu, the recommended distribution of the energy value (calorie content) of the daily ration for individual meals is taken into account. In the interval between breakfast and lunch, an additional meal is included - a second breakfast, including juice or fruit. When compiling an approximate ten-day menu and calculating calories, the recommended optimal ratio of nutrients is taken into account. The approximate ten-day menu does not repeat the same dishes or culinary products on the same day or on adjacent days. nine0084 Daily menu includes: milk, meat, potatoes, vegetables, fruits, juices, bread, cereals, butter and vegetable oil, sugar, salt. The rest of the products (cottage cheese, fish, cheese, eggs and others) are included in the menu 2-3 times a week.
      In kindergarten, the requirements of SanPiN are taken into account for the volume of portions of prepared dishes for children of different ages.
      Nutrition for children in kindergarten is organized in accordance with the principles of sparing nutrition, which provides for the use of certain methods of cooking, such as boiling, steaming, stewing, baking, and excludes frying of dishes, as well as the use of products with irritating properties. During the culinary processing of food products, the established sanitary and epidemiological requirements for the technological processes of cooking are observed. nine0084 In order to prevent hypovitaminosis in kindergarten, the approximate ten-day menu provides for the use of fortified foods and drinks. In case of their absence, artificial C-vitaminization of ready meals is carried out in the kindergarten. Vitamin preparations are introduced into the third dish after cooling just before serving. Vitaminized dishes are not heated.

    07/14/2022 BEWARE, MOSQUITO NET!

    Mosquito nets create the illusion of a fence and support. Once on the windowsill, the child tries to lean on the net, as if on a wall.

    Usually the mesh frame is attached to the window opening in 4-6 places with point fasteners - so that the frame can be easily removed. These mounts are not enough to withstand even 7-8 kilograms. In addition, the mesh itself does not cling to the frame very firmly.

    Dozens of cases of children falling out of windows are recorded every year. As a rule, this happens when the child uses an unreliable mesh as a support. It only takes a second for a child to do something that an adult would never think of. Unfortunately, sometimes this something is an irreparable mistake. nine0003


    Do not leave children unsupervised in a room where windows are open or where they can open them themselves.

    While the children are in the room, open the plastic windows only in the “ventilation” mode.

    Place stoppers on window handles to keep windows from opening wide, or remove and stow handles to prevent a child from opening the window.

    Make it impossible for the child to climb onto the windowsill. Items that can be used as steps - chairs, stools, should be removed away or fixed. nine0003

    Explain to children that an open window is dangerous, warn them not to lean on the net. Children regularly need to be reminded of the danger when they are near the windowsill and try to climb on it.

    Take care of your children!
