A Healthy Picnic at Grandma’s!
Un Picnic Sano a Nonna!
by Emily Peters

Today I decide to go to my grandparent's house.
Oggi ho deciso di andare a casa di miei nonni.

It is nice out, so we decide to have a picnic.
E 'bello fuori, così decidiamo di fare un picnic.

I decide to go to the pantry and see what we can make.
Decido di andare in dispensa e vedere cosa possiamo fare.

I decide to put fruit in the basket instead of a sugary sweet.
Ho decido di mettere la frutta nel cestino invece di una ciambella.

My goal is to have 2 different fruits with lunch.
Il mio obiettivo è di avere 2 tipi di frutta con pranzo.

I decide on apples and strawberries.
Decido di mele e fragole.

I make a goal to cut up the apple as grandpa makes the sandwiches.
Faccio un obiettivo di tagliare la mela come nonno fa i panini.

I communicate to grandpa that I want turkey and cheese on my sandwich.
Vi comunico nonno che voglio tacchino e formaggio sul mio panino

I decide to pour 3 glasses of water, so that we stay hydrated while we are outside.
Vi decido versare 3 bicchieri d'acqua, in modo da rimanere idratati, mentre siamo fuori.

We decide to make the salad together.
Facciamo l'insalata insieme.

We pack up our picnic lunch, and I set a goal to carry it in my arms.
Noi imballiamo il nostro pranzo e faccio un obbietivo a portarlo tra le mie braccia.

I communicate to my mom that I love healthy picnics at grandma’s house!
Comunico a mia mamma che amo picnic sani a casa della nonna!
