31+ Grain-free After School Snacks

31+ Paleo Primal Grainfree After School Snacks

My kids seem to be hungry ALL THE TIME.  Of course, they are going full-speed all day long, but still — “I’m hungry” is a constant refrain.  While the boys and the Husband still follow a lot of a standard American diet, I rarely buy “normal” snack options because most are ones the Little Lady can’t have … and ones that — if they’re in the house — this Mama will eat.

(I’ll admit it: I’m weak.)

So, snacks around here are nearly always grain-free and — because life is busy — nearly always items I can grab and pass out instantly.  Lately, however, I’ve been trying to stock the pantry and freezer with healthy, brain and body strengthening snacks that will keep my busy ones fueled all day long.

In the slideshow, you’ll find 31 snack ideas that are all grain-free (and most are primal or paleo).  Get ready to be hungry … these are some good ones!
