Am thinking of bringing my children to seaside/park for picnic.

Any suggestion as to what food to pack for picnic?

how old are your kids? Finger food is the best..so they can walk and eat at the same time.

The usual fare is often Fried Beehoon, Cocktail sausages, Fish balls or Ham sandwiches and cakes. Unless you have time, you can try to bake some muffins or a cake, or sardine puffs(using frozen puff pastry), make some tiny pancakes(15cm in diameter), Fried Udon(for a change rather than beehoon), fruit salad..

My children is 5 years and 3 years.

Looking for food that can last for many hours (don't turn sloggy in the container) and easy to make.

Here's some for your thoughts. I'll post the recipes later.

Noodles and Rice:
Fried Mee Tai Mak
Easy Fried Rice with Raisins and Scrambled Eggs

Side dishes(optional)
Butter Prawns with Nestum(this can stay crispy for long hours)
Fruit salad(made of seedless grapes, star fruit, red apples, seedless guava, cantelope, honey dew melon, water melon, etc)
Baked Potatoes or the Jap Sweet Potatoes(with topping of Mayo, bacon)

Appetizers or Finger Food:
home made sushi(no raw fish, as it cannot stay warm in a picnic)
Sweet Corn on the Cob
Fried Fish Balls(you can get ready fried ones from market)
Chicken cocktail sausages on a satay stick with one quail egg and a seedless grape!

Sweet Desserts/Pastries:
Cakes and muffins(check out the western pastry area, choose something easy that you can do ahead of time)

Drinks can be packet drinks, or mixed Ribena with 7Up or Sprite and keep in a cooler box/container filled with ice.

Just a suggestion. If you really-really want to bring sashimi sushi, you can keep it cool by placing it next to some frozen packet drinks. The drink will melt slowly during the day - providing cool ice cold drink for the kids and you don't have to cart a cooler with you Very Happy
