Mum shares her simple hack to give her kids a hot lunch while on a picnic – and it only costs a few quid

0 4 months ago

SUMMERTIME usually means eating al fresco with families packing up picnics to enjoy at the park or the beach. 

While it’s a novelty to eat outside, you’re usually limited to cold dishes with soggy sandwiches and finger food often on the menu.

But one mum has come up with an inventive way to give her kids hot food on a picnic – and it only costs a few quid. 

The mum, posting on her Facebook page Swords & Snoodles, said: “Out for the day and need something quick for tea… take your hotdogs in a thermos flask!

“Over 12 hours it keeps them hot for! Ketchup in a little tub… winner winner hotdog dinner!

“(We drained the hotdogs and placed in a flask full of boiling hot water.)”

Mums praised her hack as ‘genius’, saying they’re desperate to try it out next time they have a picnic.

Commenting online, one mum said: “We did this yesterday, super easy and very little rubbish and tidy up time!”
