People have asked me a lot about my kids. Are my kids keto too?
Nope. At this point, they are not. I think keto is fine for kids, we just haven't gone there. Or see the need to at this point.
They are however still Paleo. As we all are, my husband and I just do so with keto macros. Paleo was a game-changer for us all and is definitely staying in this here household.
Well, thankfully there are paleo-friendly ready-made snacks flooding the market (though READ your labels parents, just because it says paleo does not mean it is). Our cupboard is just as full of swaps like Larabars, Zevia, and Autumn's Gold Cinnamon Almond as any paleo parent.
Mostly, I make their snacks though. I just like to. We're a busy homeschooling family though, so I keep it quick and simple when it comes to our paleo kids snacks!
One thing I do struggle with is keeping the protein up in their snacks. They're 3 growing kiddos (2 teenage boys in there). They, however, would rather eat some paleo cookie concoction all day. While I prefer them to have something with a little more substance, but a jerky or meat snack isn't at the top of their snack happy list. So, I came up with a hack...
Easy No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Protein Balls

If you blend the ingredients smoother these make really great long run fuel!
