Summer snacks for the beach or a picnic

Whether you’re hiking, biking, swimming, or just enjoying some time at the beach with your family, there are many reasons to head outdoors. But don’t forget to stay safe in the sun and pack some healthy snacks!

For a picnic or beach outing where you’ll have an ice chest, frozen grapes are a great treat for snacking and keeping cool. In fact, many fruits make great grab-and-go snacks, and cold veggies can be paired with a tasty, healthy dip.

For heartier picnic fare, try this veggie-loaded grain salad — and feel free to substitute your favorite in-season veggies.
