What should I take on an easy day-long hike?

I've signed up for a 10-mile hike. It's a very easy walk on flat, open terrain, no narrow trails or anything. It's my first hike though and I'm not sure what to wear/bring. I need to bring my own lunch and snacks. Experienced hikers, what would you recommend that won't leak, break, crumble or get squashed? And how much water should I aim to bring along?
