Having a picnic this summer is a great way to bring the family together and incorporate some nutritious items into your diet, but if you’re not careful you can have some uninvited friends at your picnic. Keep your food as cool as possible during transport to prevent bacteria from growing. Full coolers stay colder longer than a cooler that is only partially full, so pack in your favorite foods and fill to the top with ice. Once you’ve set your food out, make sure it doesn’t stay out for more than 2 hours if it’s 90 degrees or warmer out.
