Clara is our four year old daughter who has been on the ketogenic diet since the fall of 2010. Since Clara was almost three when we started the diet, I remember it being really hard to find the right snacks for her. To make matters worse, her preschool had hands-on snack table every day, which really challenged me to be creative and come up with snacks that are as close as possible to what her friends were eating since I didn’t want Clara to feel left out.
Nothing fancy, but some fun recipes to satisfy those little toddlers that just want to eat something similar to their siblings and friends… and yes, it’s the fruit loops in a kebob stick that Clara has in this picture… her eyes just brightened up when she saw these in the morning, which was all worth those hours i spent in the middle of the night trying to figure out this recipe.
I do use a lot of low carb diet products that are now available due to the popular atkins diet. Some of them are not allowed for some patients under the ketogenic diet, so please check with your dietitian before trying any new ingredients.
Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks so much for your recipes and ideas for our children. Your an inspiration to us all. My great nice Mia 10.5 in age is on the keto diet. With your ideas it helps us break up the food and choices we have.

What are the ratios for your recipes? My son is on a 3:1 ratio
Ratios vary on the recipe. it is anywhere from 1:1 to 3:1. for lower ratios meals, i combine it with higher ratio dessert or sides to make the ratio work for Clara. I try to show the ratio at the bottom of each recipe, but i don’t always put it especially on recipes that can vary depending on what fruits or veggies you use. You can also find lots of 3:1 ratio meals on ketocook.com. I hope this helps.
I saw one of your recipes on pinterest and would love to have you submit a photo to a project I’m working on. My site is http://livingwellwithepilepsy.com and I’m gathering photos that feature one day of epilepsy treatment in advance of purple day (march 26). That includes the Ketogenic Diet. I’d love to include one of your pics in the mosaic I’m creating. You can check out the project here: http://livingwellwithepilepsy.com/2014/01/one-day-treatment-look-like.html
Thanks so much!
feel free to upload the pictures you need. =)
