Top tips for Packing Healthy Picnics

In the true spirit of making hay while the sun shines, what better way to spend time with your children than on a picnic? Whether it’s in your back garden, the local park or on a beach, there are a few ways to elevate your picnic from the ordinary to the memorable:

  • Include your child in the planning – where will we go? What will we bring? Who’s in charge of the games? Assigning roles can create a little extra excitement.
  • Consider a theme – if you just read a book together or watched a family movie, think of simple ways to incorporate it into the picnic. Winnie the Pooh would bring a honey dip for his chopped fruit, right? Frozen yoghurt sounds like a treat for Elsa and Anna fans. Grapes and melon slices make great Hungry Caterpillars. The possibilities are endless!
  • Freeze up some berries and you have fruity ice cubes for water – Cartons of juice are sugary and aren’t re-sealable so bottles of cold water are very picnic-friendly.
  • Play games – Picnics aren’t all about food. Bring along a board game or a deck of cards for some fun while sitting down, and maybe a ball or Frisbee to encourage a run-around.
