A Tisket, A Tasket, A Very Healthy Basket
A picnic in the park is a good time for the whole gang, but a basket of unhealthy food will leave you with no energy for the fun and games. "While you can't control the weather or ant invasions, you can control what is packed in your picnic basket,"

We'll continue tomorrow with more health picnic ideas to make this warm weather baskets very healthy!!!
