What is it about dining al fresco that makes food taste better? Whether it’s the fresh air or the scenic views, we are always looking for any excuse to share a meal in the great outdoors!
The idea of picnicking can be daunting; there are meals to prepare, blankets to pack, and cars to load. It’s easy to talk yourself out of the whole experience before you even begin! (Trust us, we’ve been there.) But we firmly believe that picnics don’t have to be a big production. In fact, they barely have to be planned! All you need are a few key items and you’re good to go at a moment’s notice.
Setting up a picnic has never been easier! With a few light snacks, a mat, and two chairs, you can reap the benefits of dining outdoors AND earning the title of coolest parent! Win-win 😉
Trail mix is a common outdoorsy delicacy for adults but it often includes foods that don’t appeal to children’s taste buds. Today we are excited to put a child-friendly spin on the classic snack by creating an easy trail mix that can be prepared in a few minutes!
Simply combine a mix of sweet and savory and healthy snack foods and layer them in an airtight jar to disperse at your next picnic.
The best part about trail mix is that it’s simple to assemble and doesn’t require refrigeration. It keeps well in nearly every climate and can be stored in your bag or your car for impromptu picnics!
The next time the weather is nice or the scenery is too beautiful to pass by, we hope you’ll take a moment out of your day to sit in nature and share a bite to eat with your little ones! These are the kinds of memories that you and your family will cherish forever.
