Happy Holidays! Picnic ideas for those staycation trips out this summer

It’s the summer holidays, and if you’re a kid that means fun days out and endless sunshine.  If you have a young family that means the headache of planning for picnics. Here comes HECK to the rescue with some picnic ideas!

The beauty of a good picnic is being able to easily pack food that can be pulled out of a picnic hamper and give everyone lots of choice to pick over.

We’ve trawled through our recipes to pull together some quick and easy picnic ideas to keep even the fussiest of eaters happy… and not a soggy sandwich in sight!


  • Super Green Lettuce Boat: chop up all the components of this fabulously light lunch option and then throw it all together in the great outdoors.

  • Chicken Italia Pasties: Plan ahead and make a batch of these tasty pasties that are just as delicious cold as they are warm. For picnics, you could try making smaller versions that are perfectly bite-sized!

  • Chicken Italia Frittata: Super easy to make and excellent chilled, this can be customised with all sorts of ingredients to give you different flavours.

  • DIY Pork Pie: Have a go at making your own picnic classic!

Pack a Tupperware box of freshly sliced carrot, cucumber and red pepper sticks, throw in a pot of houmous and some tortilla chips and begin your feast!

If you have any inspirational picnic ideas, then share them with us on on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter – we’d love to see what you can come up with.
