Are you looking to throw a baby shower that’s a bit on the healthier side? Check out this guide to learn about the top healthy baby shower food ideas.
Are you preparing to throw a baby shower for a mom-to-be in your life?
The best time to throw a baby shower is 4-5 weeks before the little bundle of joy arrives. Planning a baby shower is exciting, but there are many things to consider for everything to go smoothly. You need a venue, guest invitations, party theme, and delicious food.
If you want the baby shower to be on the healthier side, try swapping the classic catering with healthier, more creative alternatives.
Here are some healthy baby shower food ideas that’ll delight the guests and keep them coming for more.
Wholewheat Baked Donuts
Donuts are everyone’s favorite snack, but they’re fried in tons of oil and filled with sugar. For a healthier version, make them with wholewheat flour and bake them in the oven. You can make a fruit filling or leave them plain and have the guests choose their toppings.
You can bake a trial batch before the baby shower and take pictures of it to put on the invitations. You can easily do this with Adobe Spark’s baby shower invitations where you can add images, themes, and fonts.
Fruit and Veggie Skewers + Dips
Fruit and veggie skewers are two simple, healthy, and creative finger food ideas for a baby shower. You don’t need a lot of time or utensils, and they’ll be a hit at the party.
Don’t forget to add some fruit and veggie dips for a burst of flavor. The guests will love these ‘salads’ on a stick.
Healthy Charcuterie Board
A healthy charcuterie board is one of the best and easiest baby shower ideas. You don’t need a lot of prep time, there’s no cooking involved, and you can put it together in less than 30 minutes.
To make a healthy charcuterie board, you’ll need boiled eggs, cubed cheese, leafy greens, hummus, pickles, grapes, and olives. Arrange them on the board, leaving space for dips and veggie sticks.
Mediterranean Pasta Salad
Pasta dishes are easy to prepare, and you can make them healthy by using wholewheat or gluten-free pasta and add a Mediterranean twist.
To make pasta salad, chop up some fresh cucumbers (or pickles), tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, and onions. Add the pasta and toss to mix. Sprinkle with extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and balsamic vinegar. Put the salad in a large bowl so the guests can help themselves.
Baked Potato Bar
If you need creative baby shower food ideas, why not make a baked potato bar? You’ll need some regular and sweet baked potatoes and some sides and dips to add flavor.
You can include shredded white cheese, homemade ketchup, sour cream, a variety of spices, garlic butter, hummus, and salsa.
