The food and drink that you take really depends on the reason for a picnic and the ages of those you are providing for. For example, it is unlikely that a romantic picnic for two would contain the same treats as a family picnic with young children and vis versa.
With this in mind below are a few ideas for all age ranges without specific suggestions for children or romantics. I’m not claiming that all the foods listed are the healthiest on the planet but the odd treat doesn’t hurt (if you don’t have an intolerance of course).
The main thing is don’t stress about it! Unless there’s a very good reason to make it fancy I’d always recommend keeping picnics simple and you don’t need your best linen either, just a paper (disposable) tablecloth, some paper serviettes or kitchen roll, plastic cutlery and wine ‘glasses’ and either melamine or paper plates, bowls and cups.
Try to keep as much as possible to finger food to save on washing up.
