What do you pack for a picnic?

Picnic foodsIts picnic season and I’m ready for loads of al fresco dining! I’m one of those people who heads out whenever there’s a glimmer of sunshine so if its not raining but a bit dull outside, you’ll find me in a park with my cool bag.


I’m pretty consistent in what I bring on a picnic:

  • Sandwich
  • Hard boiled egg or cheese
  • Fruit
  • Cut up veggies
  • Crisps
  • Chocolate or cake
  • Drink

That’s all. Nothing exciting. It suits me partly because I have to carry it all, and partly because if I have to prepare fancy food, most likely the Lady won’t eat it.


Don’t get me wrong, I have been creative for picnics. I’ve made quiches, cold pasta salad, spanikopita, and egg muffins, but generally, a cheese sandwich cut in small bites goes down best.


But, if your little one (and big one) is a bit more adventurous, why not give some of these food ideas a go:
