Pack your baskets with these delicious goodies and go outdoors for a teddy bears’ picnic

Before carrying out these activities, ask for parental permission for the children to taste and handle foods. Check for any food allergies and dietary requirements. Provide aprons and ask the children to wash their hands.

Picnic treats

Place 200g of sliced strawberries in a bowl, together with 200g raspberries, 200g red seedless grapes (halved) and 200g of any other seasonal fruit such as blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants or gooseberries. Alternatively, use tinned or frozen fruit. Invite the children to gently mix the berries together and place in a sealed plastic container to transport to the picnic.

Let the children combine 200g of low-fat vanilla yogurt with one tablespoon of honey and place in a small, sealed container to take to the picnic. When ready to serve, encourage the children to divide the berries between six plastic cups, pour a little of the yogurt mixture over each and gently toss together. Then enjoy eating your healthy berry dessert.
