We have waited all winter for the return of mild temperatures and clear skies and here we are finally, ready to enjoy the light until late in the open air. But when preparing to organize a trip outside the home, especially if in the company of the little ones, there is always a doubt: what to bring back for lunch? If you are tired of the usual packed lunches with sandwiches and cold cuts, here are some creative, tasty and balanced ideas for the whole family.
Did you leave early and the children did not have time to have breakfast at home? Don't worry, even the first meal of the morning turns into an adventure if done on the go!

Inside each pack of Kinder Brioss, Kinder Breakfast Più and Kinder Pan and Cioc you will find a Marvel Avengers 3D character to collect! Let the children choose their favorite and accompany it with a fruit juice or a cold iced tea and off you go!
The typical rice salads can be replaced by other cereals, such as spelled, barley and even couscous. Here really the imagination has no limits: if you don't have much time choose a simple tuna, cherry tomato and basil dressing, otherwise you can grill thin slices of chicken and cut them into strips and combine them with stewed vegetables, or even a vegetarian version, you can use pesto and cherry mozzarella balls. Or you can opt for a pasta salad and win over the little ones with fun pasta Disney Dalla Costa, with 100% Italian wheat and the shapes of the most loved characters: Mickey Mouse, the Princesses and Cars.
They are a great picnic classic: the savory pies. They are cut into cubes and if prepared with different ingredients they become a real complete meal. The classic pie with spinach is always appreciated, but spring is also a season of asparagus and artichokes, equally delicious in savory pies.
Selecting less fatty ingredients, perfect for children, such as baked turkey or ricotta, bring with you also cold cuts and cheeses that the little ones can enjoy together with crunchy bread sticks Disney of Vitavigor: you can choose between the full-bodied Vitastick, rich in taste and fiber, or the Vitastick Mini with Pizza or Parmigiano Reggiano flavor in the practical multipack format with 6 sachets and 1 cute Disney tattoo!

Bread and muffins
The real burger is made with bun, a soft and round American bun covered with sesame seeds, but we can also opt for an Italianized version using some scones.
Also Sandwiches Milk they are good, but be careful because they are easily moistened so once stuffed they should be eaten immediately, especially if there are sauces inside.
Arabic bread is excellent especially with the addition of fresh raw vegetables and yogurt sauce.
And speaking of sauces, how to combine these burgers?
Obviously with a good homemade mayonnaise you are never wrong and therefore we invite you to try our recipe of mayonnaise.
Then you can't miss even the Ketchup and this too can easily be prepared at home.
If you want something very delicate you can also opt for a simple one yogurt sauce with lemon juice and chopped mint that goes very well especially with fatty fish such as salmon.
At this point, when the burger is ready and the sauces are ready, all that remains is to stuff the sandwich or focaccia.
If children love vegetables use the classic lettuce leaf it's a tomato slice, otherwise only sauces.
Obviously, being a fish burger, the cheese must be excluded!
