Low Carb Corn Dog Bites Recipe (Kid Friendly Keto Snack) on Wooden Table

Back to school is an exciting time for so many reasons, but it’s also a very busy time. Any extra help or tips that parents can get on how to feed their kids nutritious meals that even picky eaters will enjoy are most welcome. We happen to have a few tricks up our sleeves when it comes to kid friendly keto snack ideas that are healthy, quick, and easy!

School Snacks for Kids

When we were kids, after school snacks were things like a bowl of sugary cereal with milk, cookies, or for a healthier option, sweetened yogurt with fruit. Notice the trend…these things are all full of sugar! As we become more aware of how sugar impacts our children, it’s becoming more popular to choose healthy and even keto-friendly snacks for kids.

Here are a few pre-packaged kid friendly keto school snack ideas that are easy to pack:

  • Nuts
  • String cheese
  • Veggie chips
  • Good quality meat jerky
  • Seaweed crisps (you might be surprised, your kids might love them!)

Snacks That Kids Can Make

We love cooking with kids! Here are a few easy recipe ideas that they can help with. Depending on your child’s age, you might need to slice veggies, or if they’re old enough to use a knife, make sure to supervise them.

  • Celery stuffed with cream cheese or almond butter
  • Raw veggies (like bell pepper, celery, broccoli) with ranch dressing
  • Cucumber and cheese “sandwiches”

Is Popcorn Keto?

Because it’s such a popular snack, we wanted to talk about popcorn! We don’t like to consider any foods completely off-limits on a keto diet; rather, it’s all about fitting nutrient-dense foods into your daily meal plan. Corn is a grain, and it’s important to note that it’s relatively high in carbs. According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, 1 cup of air-popped popcorn has 31kcals, 1.04g protein, .36g fat, 6.22g carbohydrates, and 1.2g fiber. That brings us to about 5g net carbs per 1 cup serving, but in reality, how satiating is 1 cup of popcorn? But if it’s important to you and it fits into your meal plan, go ahead and enjoy it.

Are Hot Dogs Keto?

In general, hot dogs are something we consider a treat and not part of our normal eating routine. This is because hot dogs are highly processed and many contain nitrates and/or nitrites and are high in sodium. That being said, sometimes you just want a great dog! On those occasions, we go for an organic, uncured all-beef hot dog (Applegate Farms is our favorite).

In terms of a ketogenic lifestyle, if you’re going to eat hot dogs, look at the macros to make sure you can fit it into your daily meal plan. You might be surprised that a lot of hot dogs are high in carbs because of additives!
