Food and Water: Beach picnics are delicious, but the hot temperatures can quickly spoil food that is not preserved correctly. Avoid mayonnaise-based foods, and keep cold food cold and hot food hot. Since maintaining proper food temperatures at the beach can be challenging, try to pack non-perishable items, such as peanut butter sandwiches or dried fruit. Everyone, especially active children, must drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
Marine Life: Jellyfish are common visitors to many beaches, so teach kids to keep their eyes peeled for these stinging animals. Dead jellyfish can still sting, so tell kids not to poke or prod animals that wash up on the sand. Though shark attacks are extremely rare, follow simple rules to minimize the risk even further. Be aware of shark danger in your area. Do not swim if you are bleeding, and avoid the ocean during twilight hours. If the water is murky or fisherman are nearby, avoid swimming or wading.
Rules: Children should follow all instructions from lifeguards. Pay attention to flags and signs that warn visitors about tide conditions and the presence of marine life, and teach your kids to watch for these helpful indicators.
Beach trips can be very memorable when following the above suggestions.
So. Have fun, be safe!
