Day3: Explore Munnar. Night stay @ Munnar.
Day4: Straight to Thekkady. Night Stay @ Thekkady.

I am going with my family & 2 Others Families. We are travelling with 2 Kids (Average age is 1 Year). My questions are as follows:
  1. 1 Is October is a rainy month in Kerala?
  2. 2 Is this itinary is suitable for Kids?
  3. 3 Can we make a better plan?
  4. 4 Is there any food problem for Bengali's?

1. Ideally it shoudn't rain in Kerala in October and you willbe blessed with clear sky.

2. Of course it looks good.

3. May be you could cut short one night at Thekkady and proceed to Alleppey and check in to a house boat.

4. Being Bengali I guess you are a hard core fish lover May be boiled rice could be a slight problem though

Kappad beach is far north and it should be avoided. From Thekkady you travel directly to Alleppey.

I think it's Cherai beach which is near to Kochi

Kappad is in Calicut which is in Malabar region (North Kerala).
