One of our favorite summer activities to do is pack a picnic and head somewhere the kids can run and play!

I think it’s much more relaxing to manage our 18 month-old when he’s not confined to a small restaurant highchair. It makes everyone a little happier! So I’ve put together a few well-balanced, simple food ideas that are good for a summer picnic with the kiddos!

Picnic Food For Kids

Cut vegetables in a silicone flower pot with hummus on the bottom.

Veggie Pots with Hummus

Loaded some cute veggie pots with hummus. I bought these silicone pots that you can also use for baking. They are perfect for adding hummus to the bottom and then sticking cut vegetables in!

Use cookie cutters to make shapes in melons and strawberries. Use a small heart cookie cutter to cut honeydew and cantaloupe then added them to a popsicle stick like a fruit skewer. They’re easy to eat this way and less of a juice mess.

Drinks for Kids

For the drinks, I was feeling all the summer vibes and picked up some easy-to-open coconuts!

Cold-pressed strawberry lemonade is always great too.

I’ll be the first to admit, my kids LOVE the great taste of Macaroni & Cheese, and so did I growing up. Actually, who am I kidding, I’m always the one eating their leftovers! So we’re using KRAFT cauliflower and added it to jar for easy packing.

This was all so easy to put together and 100% kid-approved. If you have picky eaters, try serving them KRAFT Mac & Cheese Cauliflower because it sneaks those veggies in and they’ll love it. Just don’t eat it all yourself! Stay charming!
