Enjoy a Fall Picnic with Family or Friends

October is Eat Better, Eat Together Month

Eating together is a great way to connect. And, Fall in Idaho offers beautiful weather to enjoy a meal outside. A little planning can make it easy. Prep food the day before and pack it in a basket, box or backpack. Keep it simple and don’t forget a heavy blanket and some extra fall layers if the weather gets cooler.

Plan Where You’re Going

  • A PARK– Bring your picnic to a nearby park. After eating, go for a walk to spot colorful changing leaves.
  • AT HOME– Have a picnic right outside your home. Pack up a meal and be sure to leave the cellphones in the house. After eating, enjoy a game.

Just add conversation, laughter, and fun!
