    ok so im off to the zoo 2moro with Rhys, Ffion and Colins two sisters aged 6 and 11,

    im planning on packing a picnic so i dont have to buy food whilst we're there.

    im planning on sandwhiches, crisps and choccy bars but thats about as far as ive got :blush:

    what would you pack? and how much?

    Well, plan how long you're going to be there first off. If it's just lunch you need, you'll probably just need a sandwich each, a choccy and a drink. Maybe take some other snacks in case anyone gets peckish.

    Maybe you could take some frozen juice with you to last the day?

    Maybe pack 2 or 3 kinds of sandwiches, a cheese, a meat and maybe a fish (tuna), enough for 2 sanwiches each perhaps? 5 packets of crisps, 3 or 4 choccy bars and maybe a couple of little fruit bags incase anybody doesnt want chocolate .. thats how i'd pack it

    I like packing chopped up apples and grapes and those frubes yogurt tube things, I freeze them and put them in the lunch box and it keeps everything else cool and they have de- frosted when the kids come to eat them :D

    I always pack more than i think we'll eat so that we avoid buying stuff there. If we have normal amounts then chips and ice creams tempt me!

    This is what i take for our picnics!
    I usually make a potato salad which always goes down well!
    Bring loads of fruits ( i put them in seperte punnets or bowls so they can pick at them) blueberrys , starwberries , starfruits , grapes easy things for little hands!
    Different cheeses and a large baguette.
    And one pack of crisps to share out between everyone! Nom nom nom!
