Wraps are always a good meal idea for the kids – our lettuce wraps are a healthy alternative with no carbs and you can fill the wraps with whatever you want making them ideal for fussy kids and adventurous adults as well or how about trying some Mexican Chicken Wraps from Weight Watchers perfect for making up in advance putting in the cool bag and enjoying out on the picnic blanket. Just one more wrap recipe because I really couldn’t resist making this after seeing it on Pinterest Strawberry Chicken and Bacon Spinach Wraps with a Poppy Seed Dressing from Creme de la Crumb.


Our favourite thing to bring to a picnic is some salads – perfect for eating cold the Quinoa Lunch we made is easy and again like our Lettuce Wraps you can add the ingredients you want to but, salads for your picnic don’t stop there why not try a BLT Pasta Salad combining one of my favourite sandwich fillings but in a much healthier alternative to the farmhouse white loaf I love it with. I love cheese and I know it’s not strictly healthy but a small amount of it isn’t that bad for you and this Beetroot, orange and feta Salad combines some fantastic flavours in a healthy salad.

Sweet Treats

No picnic is complete without some sweet treats to take with you and these can be healthy as well – our no sugar oatmeal cookies are perfect for packing away with you although probably better as a snack between playing. There are plenty of healthy cakes, fruit salads and treats you can take with you. Our fruit swords and fairy wands are always a hit when we take them on a picnic – just remember to dispose of the skewers safely better still take them home with you at the end of the picnic and throw away there. My favourite healthy cake and it is SOooooo delicious is brownies – yes brownies made with beetroot – don’t worry you can’t taste it but these ones made with honey and dried dates are super tasty. My other favourite cake is a carrot cake – and my recipe isn’t healthy at all but there are healthy alternatives that are just delicious – check out these healthy Carrot Cake Muffins perfect for packing for your picnic. For those not wanting cakes – you could make up these fruit cones and hand out ones to the family as well.
