July National Picnic Month

Make the most of National Picnic Month by enjoying the great outdoors on a picnic with family or friends or both!  We have teamed up with the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) to provided healthy snacks and fun outdoor activities.

May we suggest Nutty Pear Pockets with Aged Cheddar Cheese?  These pockets are a healthy picnic option. The tartness of the cranberries plays off the sweetness of the pears and the nutty tang of the grass-fed Irish cheese. Ginger and lemon yogurt add even more fun for your taste buds. These pockets are stuffed with flavor and an easy on the go meal!

You can’t have a picnic without fun outdoor events, so why not have a pick-up soccer game? Celebrate the US Women’s National Team's World Cup victory by having a fun soccer game in the park or back yard.  It’s always good to show kids how to play in a no-pressure environment.

Bring lawn games with you like bocce ball, cornhole or ladder ball.  The more choices, the more games you can play.  If you have a large group, your lawn games can be played simultaneously.

If you have hula hoops, have a hula hoop contest.  Everybody loves a little friendly competition.  Give a small prize to the person who can keep their hula hoop spinning the longest.
