We all know the different benefits of the paleo diet, along with extreme increase in the amounts of energy that we experience, also the boundless health increases. Okay we do not need to go on with the whole list of different benefits that a person who goes on this diet will experience.
The problem is however not convincing you to go on the diet its convincing your children and showing them the benefits that the diet will give them. This however is not as easy as it sounds, we as adults can understand the health benefits but as children its harder for them to understand any of those concepts, especially if they are used to a diet filled with sugary treats.
One advantage is that once you start consuming foods on the diet and start to experience the benefits of it, people in your family will start to notice and will be intrigued. This is often a good way to get the whole family to get on board the paleo train.

Now I do not think that you should be forcing your children to change their diets, especially if they are used to consuming foods that are full of bad ingredients or sugary. But instead from a young age implement a healthy way of life and explain to children how they can benefit and how good they feel when eating the right foods. This will naturally help the child to learn and motivate them to make better diet choices when consuming different foods.
Using forceful tactics such as banning your child from eating non paleo diet when outside of the house may result in the child rebelling against you and therefore be more inclined to choosing foods that are not good for them.
