LEYF's Perfect Picnic!
British Summertime means a few things – BBQs, walks and, most importantly, picnics! Sitting in the sun with a sandwich and a cold drink is a great family activity and at LEYF we’re here to recommend some great ways to have the perfect picnic and some healthy snacks for your little ones.
1) The Perfect Spot
A good spot is a pivotal factor when it comes to your picnic. And when you’re with your children it’s even more important! Make sure to choose a spot with a good view and a good amount of shade – sitting in direct sunlight can be a direct risk to your child’s skin.
2) Sun Protection
It’s extremely important to make sure that you’re protected against the sun – even if your sat in the shade! Make sure to carry lots of sun cream and have a lot of hats
Finally, it’s extremely important for you to stay hydrated in the heat! Make sure that you’ve got a healthy supply of water and drinks to make sure you don’t burn out at your own picnic.
Naturally, food is extremely important when it comes to a picnic – without it you’re just sitting on a blanket in a big open space! However, you don’t have to stick with crisps and sandwiches – spice things up with some delicious, healthy options!
- Spring salad – lettuce, mozzarella, olives, tomatoes
- Pasta Salad – pasta, pesto, olives and tomatoes
- Lime cordial (a less sugary alternative to pop)
- Yogurt Jamboree - a yogurt of your choice mixed with summer fruit of your choice!
These are just some of our suggestions – we’re sure you’ve got plenty ideas of your own!
