kidsSummer in Ottawa is the most beautiful time of year. The weather is warm, the sky is blue, and you don’t have to wear 10 layers of clothes! With all of this perfect weather, we tend to want to spend a little more time outdoors than usual. Picnics are the perfect way to spend time outside in the fresh air, while enjoying the company of your family.

Today we are going to share with you, the 5 best foods to bring along with you on your next picnic adventure.

Ottawa Picnic Must Haves

Keep in mind that we are talking about an picnic in Ottawa. These picnic must haves are going to come straight from the menu of Ottawa’s best catering company, Kettleman’s Bagel Co.

  1. Bagel and Cream Cheese

If you’re planning an early morning picnic, there’s no better way to start the day than with a classic cream cheese bagel. At Kettleman’s we make our bagels fresh all day long, every day of the week, using traditional methods. Once you have Kettleman’s, no other bagel will compare.

  1. Sandwiches

At Kettleman’s we offer a wide variety of sandwiches, from BLTs to Ham and Cheese, and everything in between. Sandwiches are the classic choice for a picnic lunch. With so many different options at Kettleman’s you won’t have to worry about being overly stuffed, or unsatisfied, we have something for everyone.

  1. Salad

Although the warm weather is a lovely change from the freezing cold, sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. A salad is the perfect option for lunch because it’s not too heavy, and will provide you with that refreshed yet satisfied feeling!

  1. Baked Goods

This is another wonderful option for a breakfast or brunch picnic. A couple of baked goods accompanied by a cup of coffee is the perfect way to get your day started. We have many different types of baked goods from Nanaimo Bars, to Apple Turnovers, Cinnamon Buns and more! There is something for everyone on our baked treats menu.

  1. Vegetarian Foods
