Paleo Kid Snacks – Back to School Ideas

Paleo, Vegan options, No Recipe Needed, Minimal Ingredients, Allergy Friendly – Snacks

Hi, Mama! I got the perfect back to school Paleo Kid Snacks for your little or big ones! My little Snackosaur’s are getting ready for Preschool and 4K this year. Which for me means four hours of uninterrupted freedom. I’ve been dreaming of this day for a long time.

I have grand plans of hitting the gym {to work on my mom abs}, deep cleaning the house of greasy hand prints on the walls and unmentionables on the ceiling, and making dinner without being called to the bathroom to wipe butts.

The reality of all that is, you’ll find me on the couch binge watching Netflix with my reheated coffee from the morning chaos.

Even though school is only half a day, we are still responsible for packing a ‘healthy’ snack. Depending on who you ask or what references you pull, everyone’s definition of ‘healthy’ varies.

My standard of the word healthy when it comes to the foods we consume comes down to one word; real.

Real food is defined as unprocessed and in it’s most natural state; meat, fowl, seafood, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. And that is just what you’ll find in the Paleo Kid Snacks listed below!

Real Foods. No Recipe Required. Allergy Friendly.
