Snacks for Primal / Paleo Kids

Here's a list of easy primal/paleo snacks for kids (or mom and dad!) that we like to eat at our house:

  • Apple with nut or seed butter
  • Banana with nut or seed butter
  • Turkey, ham or pepperoni slices
  • Veggie tray with homemade ranch dip
  • Nuts and dried fruit
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Deviled eggs
  • Leftover pieces of chicken or roast
  • Primal coconut flour muffins
  • Sunny pumpkin cookies
  • Smoothies
  • Ham or turkey slices with melon
  • Coconut flour pancakes
  • Chicken or tuna mayo based salad
  • Natural hot dogs - I like Applgate Farms organic grass fed dogs
  • Meatballs
  • Fruit salad
Do you have any other yummy snack ideas? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!

    1. Hi Kara, just found your blog! I'm new to primal and am converting my kids... we're just on day two but so far I've found two big winners. I'm not limiting dairy yet, in case you can't tell :) They just love full-fat greek yogurt with fruit mashed in and oddly enough, fried cheese. I just throw a small handful of shredded cheese into a skillet and let it cook into a flat cake, flip it when it's browned on the bottom and cook for a few more minutes.

    2. Fried cheese sounds really yummy. Thanks for the additional ideas!

    3. Love your idea! A favorite at our house is a big bowl of fresh berries! Gone in just a few minutes! Or we put a variety of fruits sliced up and toss them with orange juice and chopped nuts.

    4. Can you post the recipe for the sunny pumpkin cookies? I tried clicking the link but never found it. It re-directed me back to a different post.
      We love your zucchini bread so much, I'd like to try some other baked goods you've created!

    5. Thanks for the list! I've got to expand my daughter's diet, but for now her favorite snacks are frozen strawberries, bacon (cooked until it's crunchy), and raw broccoli. Of course she also loves cookies, so I am going to try grain free cookie recipes for her.

    6. Nice to find your blog. My husband and I are both Paleo now, and thinking about moving our 5 and 12 year old boys on to it gradually. Your tips will help!

    7. Im new to paleo, and me and my family are about thirteen days in. I realize now that its a transition and its not going to happen overnight. We are slowly converting what we eat. Since I have 3 kids (9, 8, and 5)im always trying to find things they like. The best meal I make is taco salad, minus chips and tortillas. Its the least changed meal and its still pretty basic.

    8. we still eat limited dairy - mostly to help the kids do breakfast etc, so one of their favorite snacks is pickle wraps. spread a little cream cheese on ham or corned beef slices and wrap around a dill pickle. delicious! We use baby dills and eat like that, but our friends use large ones, then slice them up and sprinkle with pepper.

    9. My kids like Caveman Cookies and so do I. www.Cavemancookies.com

    10. My kids love "roll your own" lettuce wraps, turkey wraps (that is using the lettuce or turkey as the outer layer) with carrots, tomatoes, nuts, raisins, slices os pear or apple.
      Another winner here are cucumber slices topped with tuna or chicken pieces! Yum!

    11. It's called "Paleo breakfast bread" but it makes for a fantastic snack at any time of the day. My entire family absolutely loves this paleo recipe.

    12. Hi - thanks so much for your blog - it's a help! Any ideas for a child who can only eat fruit, veggies and nuts. No grains, no eggs, no dairy.
      She's only 3 and does well on what she has - but this Grammy is looking for something special for her.

    13. We like carrots, broccoli and kale or zucchini chips. We like cauliflower "bread sticks" dipped in tomato sauce and nitrate free deli meat.

      I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people's attention?
      I mean "Snacks for Primal / Paleo Kids" is a little vanilla.
      You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they write post headlines to get people to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything've got to say.
