50. Perfect picnics
The secret of a stress-free, successful picnic is simplicity, plus careful planning and packing.
A picnic has to be the perfect family day out. Organise one to celebrate a sunny day, or as an excuse to catch up with old friends.
When it comes to picnic food, it doesn’t pay to be too ambitious. Forget struggling with hot dishes, three courses, real plates and cutlery. Simple food that can be eaten with fingers works best.
Take advantage of the huge range of ready-made picnic products available and share the menu with other families.
