You might have landed here looking for keto snacks that will help you lose some of that lasting baby weight. Or maybe you’ve found it harder and harder to shed the extra weight as you get older.
Maybe you are just looking to reduce the amount of carbs, grains, and sugars in your family’s diet and increase healthy fats and proteins.
Finding foods that satisfy the whole family can be a challenge. And life is that much easier when everyone is on the same page. I know I find it easier to eat healthy when there is less tempting foods in the house! And one of my requirements for snacks is quick and convenient. That means I can make and store or they are already made for me! I don’t need snack time to become a 4th meal I need to prep!
Here are 11 keto snacks that even your kids will love! They are quick and healthy- and great for the whole family!
11 Keto Snacks the Whole Family Will Love
This is a go-to snack in my house no matter what we are eating. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s on-the-go. And it’s a great keto snack as well! (And you don’t just have to get “string cheese”. Any cheese makes a great keto snack!)
Hard Boiled Eggs
We’ve got a yard full of chickens, which means eggs are always around. Hard boiled eggs have filled my teen boys up and keep them full of good, wholesome, home-grown protein.
Even my 3 year old will eat 3 (or more) hard-boiled eggs in one sitting. This is my go-to, must have keto snack!
Nuts are great for the whole family! Nuts like walnuts, pecans, almonds, and macadamia nuts are perfect for growing kids and parents wanting to eat the keto
diet! I like to keep a bag of nuts in my purse for those times when somebody is “starving!!!”
Jerky can be a great, protein filled, keto snack for the entire family. You do have to be careful about the types of jerky you get, since some are highly processed and contain not so great ingredients.
Or learn to make your own!
Vegetable get a bad rap with kids but I don’t know why. My kids love fresh veggies! They eat cucumbers straight from the garden by the pounds. Keeping a tray of things like sliced carrots, celery, carrots, cucumbers, and peppers in the fridge means they are an easy grab and go for those kids that like to graze.
Pair with a keto-friendly dip or dressing and it’s a healthy way for everyone to snack!
Like nuts, seeds are a great keto-snack. Seeds like pumpkin or sunflower seeds are great to pair with nuts for a change in flavor or texture. You can also spice them up a bit with salt, pepper, or other spices.
Sometimes changing the appearance of a vegetable makes it more appealing to kids. Like these cucumber chips– they are the same nutrition in cucumbers, but they have been dehydrated and flavored, making them a totally kid-friendly keto snack!
Try it with other veggies like zucchini too!
Cheesy Garlic Muffins
These cheesy garlic muffins take more time than the other keto snack ideas, but they are worth it! Muffins are a staple snack in my house, but many are full of carbs and sugar. This recipe is keto friendly!
Make a big batch and keep in the fridge or freezer so the kids can heat them up on demand!
These Cheese Crisps are easy to make- and only have 2 ingredients. The kids can even make them all by themselves!
Plus they crisp up so it’s almost like eating a cheese cracker!
Peanut Butter Protein Balls
Everyone in my home is a peanut butter lover! Which means these Peanut Butter Protein Balls are a huge hit!
My teen boys especially love this protein filled snack- especially after being active or exercising!
Sometimes at snack time, you just want crackers. Something crunchy. Or salty. Or sweet. Homemade crackers take some prep work on your part, but when you get in a good routine, you can have keto-friendly crackers as snack all the time!
Try out these Keto Graham Crackers or Low Carb Cheddar Basil Bites!
