GAPS Diet Snack Ideas

Have you ever wondered what snacks you could possibly feed your kids on GAPS? Maybe you’ve got the carrot sticks + boiled eggs thing going, and you’re ready for some more interest in your snack repertoire. Below is a roundup of GAPS Diet Snack ideas for you to pull out whenever you need some new ideas or inspiration. 

GAPS Diet Snack Notes:

  • While on the GAPS™ Diet, we aim for 85% of our foods to be savory, nourishing, healing & gut microbiome populating with foods like soups, stocks/broths, meats, veggies, probiotics & eggs.
  • But there is some room for some fun snacks!
  • There is even room, a little, itty bit of room, for snacks on the GAPS Introduction Diet, the most restrictive portion of the GAPS™ Protocol.
  • I’ve also included some snacks specific to a Low FODMAPS version of GAPS and a Keto/Blood Sugar diet version of GAPS.
