Fire Island 411

I live in NYC and would like to take my family for a day trip to Fire Island, but have been kind of frustrated by the googling I've done (lots of info, some of it conflicting). Any Fire Island residents/visitors care to help me out?

I'm trying to figure out which beach(es) would be most easily accessible from the Bay Shore ferry (I have small children, and we have beach stuff to haul along, so a long walk is not ideal). Ocean Beach seems to be a commonly recommended destination, but I've read that food and drink are prohibited on the beach. Is that possible? You're not allowed to pack sandwiches/bottled water? Seems weird.
I don't need to know about accommodations or nightlife or other entertainment options... basically I'm just looking for a beach that is easy to get to and allows sandwiches. :) If no such place exists on FI, we'll just stick with Robert Moses, which would be fine too.
Thanks very much for any help.
