Plan a Labor Day Picnic: 4 Ways a Picnic Can Help You Get Healthy & Active

It's time to focus on healthy eating habits and getting active with your family. Here's some fun family tips for enjoying the outdoors and a picnic with your family this Labor Day:

  • Filling your picnic basket can be educational and fun for everybody. Find a local farmers’ market and have your kid’s help you pick out fresh fruits and vegetables like watermelon and cucumber
  • As temperatures rise and days get longer, don’t forget to pack water bottles and remind your kids to hydrate.
  • Picnics are also an opportunity to incorporate family fitness. Set aside time during the picnic where everyone puts down their phones and participates in a fun family activity. This can be as simple as playing a game of catch, tag or kicking a ball around.
