Stay Healthy on the Go

  • Casual foods, preferably sandwiches or other things you can eat without utensils Avoid foods with mayonnaise. Pack everything in lightweight, resealable containers.
  • Ice pack or bags of ice Food can spoil and harbor bacteria when not stored at the right temperature. Keep everything cold with refreezable ice packs, or fill a couple of resealable bags with ice cubes: They’ll chill food as it’s transported. Add ice cubes to drinks during the picnic. Empty out whatever remains before you go, for a lighter trip home.
  • Drinks Bring an assortment of kid-friendly and adult beverages, such as bottled water and juice.
