Paleo and young kids

I am new to paleo but not wheat free, I have 2 small children 2 and 5. For me paleo diet is great and the kids wheat free easy (eldest had suspected wheat intolerance early on) so we are adapted to that. Just wanted ideas for full paleo ideas for the kids, they are not fussy, they ate steak and ox kidney tonight! But I need ideas for kids breakfast and snacks to make this diet foolproof!

Agreed, ketogenic is unnecessary for kids (and most people realy). It only benefits those who have screwed up their metabolism significantly (i.e. fatties).

Good luck to you. You are doing your family a great service. Make sure your in-laws and other people in their sphere are aware of your ways.

Thanks, I guessed egg was the way to go! They like egg and beans so got to get them out of that idea. I have had a few mornings where egg and some banana and apples were enough for breakfast, they are used to porridge as the norm. I made yogurt from scratch, not going to eliminate dairy so thinking that and honey is also an option too.

My kids fell in love with Chomps Snack Stick from the day one. Ever since they’d like to chomp it everyday. I'm really grateful to my friend who recommended them to me. I think  Chomps are one of the best snack options for my kids as they are all natural, 100% grass fed beef, gluten free,paleo friendly high in protein and without any junk.

Hey guys thanks for your responses, we have had a really good week moving to paleo options with the kids. I have kept porridge for breakfast on school days, oats milk and a little honey nothing else, but on the weekend we had eggs and fruit. I have also found these great snack bars here in the UK which are made of dates, cashews, cocoa powder and nothing else. They have gone down a treat! Other than that we have had beef and kidney stew, chicken and veggies, all organic as we get our stuff from a farm direct box scheme or farmers market...happy days.

I have noticed a positive difference in the kids, more energy, less asking for food between meals but better eating when we do eat so I think it's paying off in a good way x

Pick up a copy of Eat Like a Dinosaur. Lots of good recipes in there, plus it starts with a story-book that helps kids understand why they are eating like they're eating.

Also remember to not go keto with kids. The nutritional/macro needs of kids are different than those of adults.

I started my son, 5 years old, eating Paleo not long ago. He is picky so I am always on the lookout for new ideas also. I have been successful with egg rolls - eggs lightly scrambled and fried, rolled with all natural thin sliced meat. Banana pancakes (his favorite) - 1 banana and 1 egg mashed and blended and cook like normal pancake, sometimes i would add little salt vanilla or cinnamon. Sausage face - cooked sausage patty and make a face on it using fruit and veggies, he likes making the faces also. Sliced apples with almond butter. Buy a food dehydrator and dry your own fruit. Fruit and veggie kabobs. Sausage and cucumber sandwiches. Meat on a stick. Egg drop soup. Jerky. Cook extra meat like chicken legs and keep in fridge for on the go lunch. Little bags of their favorite veggies cleaned, cut and ready to grab. Olives are always fun. Fruit leather and Lara bars are in my car for an emergency snack.

Eggs and bacon, you can make egg muffins (google for recipes). Jerky - beef, salmon, chicken. Paleo crunch cereal with coconut milk, again this is a google for clones. For my son, every friggin day it is a stir fry - bacon, carrot, zucchini, sausage, curry powder with a Kiwi on the side. I could cook this up blind folded. Some days I get away with using a leftover bit of meat from dinner. Nothing tastier than some fried sweet potato slices in bacon fat with curry powder.
