9 Keto Snacks For Kids That They Will Love and Chow Down

Keto snacks your kids are guaranteed to love.

Kids are never easy to deal with. They can be particularly difficult to deal with when it comes to the food they want to eat.

A lot of kids are very picky about what they consume on a daily basis. Sometimes you might be forced to make them eat things they might not like.

When it comes to the ketogenic diet, you may be thinking that it may be unsafe for kids to be on or that they’re going to have even fewer food options to choose from making them even pickier eaters.

Keto diets are not only safe for children, but they can help make them healthier in the long run.

Although it’s nice to have them on a carb restriction, you don’t have to be as restrictive as you would be on yourself.

The snacks below are keto snacks that any kid is almost guaranteed to love. They are quick and can be taken nearly anywhere if you’re on the move, like to a sporting event or school function.

Keto Snacks For Kids

Having some of these keto snacks ready for your kids at all times can be perfect. They are all healthy and you won’t have to worry about your child filling their system with a bunch of junk.

Tater Tots

Tater tots are perfect. This is actually an ideal snack that will taste like it’s made from potatoes.

This recipe calls for cauliflower instead of potatoes. If you ever need a potato substitute for a keto dish, your first look should be towards cauliflower. It’s the best substitute and you can’t even tell the difference.

The first time I was given a “potato” that was actually cauliflower I couldn’t believe it.

If my experienced taste pallet can’t tell the difference then your kids for sure aren’t gonna be able to tell the difference. They’ll just assume they are regular tater tots.

Just take this as another small victory and go with it.

Cheesy Rollups

Jalapeno poppers can be a crowd favorite. It’s important to know whether or not your kid can handle a bit of spicy food though.

If you make them something that’s too spicy, they are going to be turned off jalapeno poppers forever.

Another good thing about this recipe is that it’s wrapped in bacon. Bacon makes everything better, whether it be sweet, salty, or savory.

If your child loves bacon and a little bit of spice then you have to make this recipe for them. This could become one of their favorite snacks immediately.

Pork Rinds

Pork rinds are something that you don’t necessarily have to make. You can find a bag of them at almost any grocery store.

They almost always have 0 net carbs, depending on the seasoning that is put on them, and they are great when you need something to substitute for potato chips.

Pork rinds are great for a lot of keto recipes that need breading. When you cook with them they act as a normal breading that you would have on a non-keto diet.

Below are the macros for regular pork rinds. If you buy them from the store, be sure to check the nutrition facts to see the macros.
