Feeding kids can be tricky, especially on any kind of special diet. Here I’ve put together a list of tried and true paleo food my kids will actually eat.
The biggest question that I get asked about paleo is whether or not my kids eat paleo too. The answer is that they do. I will be the first to admit that during the summer months, they eat more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch than I’d like. For the most part, however, they eat what I eat. I don’t cook separate meals. I make one meal, and that’s it. If you do things differently in your house, that’s cool. I’m not judging, but I don’t have the time or the patience to take orders and make meals for everyone.

Of course, this means that some dinners are disasters. I’m not a magician, after all. Sometimes, I make meals that the kids just do not like. It happens to all of us, but I do have a few meals that are guaranteed kid-friendly hits in my household.
Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers
My kids love these Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers. My husband loves these. I love these. Plus, they are so easy to make. Technically, because they have cheese on them, they are primal and not paleo, but you can swap in some dairy-free cheese to make them paleo. Plus, you can always mix things up by changing the color of the peppers, adding mushrooms, or even pepperoni or salami.
Paleo Pizza Crust
What kid doesn’t like pizza? Plus, this Paleo Pizza Crust holds up to toppings. It doesn’t sag or get soggy, which really helps my kids enjoy it.
Paleo Asian Garlic Steak Skewers
My kids love steak, and these Paleo Asian Garlic Steak Skewers are no exception. They are packed with flavor, and there is something fun for kids about eating food on a stick.
Pizza Spaghetti Pie
This recipe for Pizza Spaghetti Pie from PaleOMG was the first recipe that where my kids would actually eat spaghetti squash. Everything up until that point had been a failure. This recipe was a kid-friendly recipe that really helped get them to see that spaghetti squash was not the enemy. Plus, taking as much of the moisture out the spaghetti squash as possible has helped too.
Egg Roll in a Bowl
I am not going to lie to you, the first time I made this recipe, I was super nervous about my kids enjoying it. However, they ate every bite of this Egg Roll in a Bowl and asked for more. The results have been the same every time I’ve made it since, too.
Not a Grain Bars from Danielle Walker
5 Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bites– Totally not paleo, but I make a giant batch of these every week, and my kids love them.
Fruits and Vegetables- My kids love snacking on raw veggies.
Egg Muffins- For these, I just take a dozen eggs, scramble them, add in whatever protein I have, some vegetables, pour the mixture into a well-greased muffin tin and bake for about 30 minutes. These are an easy, healthy grab and go breakfast that my kids love.
