Look at that face. I mean can anyone really say no? We all know that table scraps are typically bad for our four-legged friends, but isn’t there something we can share? Much to our luck, there is! In fact, there are a few people treats we can pass over to our pups. But remember, all of the items on this list are without any extras – no butter, no salt, no sugar. They are as is, and believe it or not, your pooch will probably love them! Just remember that they are still treats, so you only want to feed them sparingly.
- Sweet potatoes – Yep! These are actually very nutritious, containing lots of antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals. To feed sweet potatoes, simply bake them and mash them up or cut them into treat-like cubes. A simple and long-lasting treat!
- Peanut Butter – You probably already knew about this one, but that’s good! It means you’ve been choosing a healthy and safe people snack for your pup! Peanut butter tends to be an all-time favorite Kong suffer for both dogs and owners alike. The good news is that we can keep it up!
- Yogurt – Now, remember that when we say yogurt, we mean plain yogurt with no added flavors, sugars, or artificial sweeteners. Don’t go giving Fido your strawberry-banana flavored store brand. When you choose yogurt with active bacteria cultures, you’ll actually be feeding your dog a healthy probiotic! In fact, yogurt is one of the few items on this list that you should have no problem feeding with every meal.
- Eggs – Everyone can have protein for breakfast! Scrambling up some eggs for your pooch certainly won’t hurt him (just remember to hold the salt and pepper)
- Kelp – You might be wondering if this is actually a human food, but it is! In fact, kelp holds a ton of nutritional value for both humans and dogs. While you might not have access to raw kelp, it’s readily available in powdered forms to add to your dog’s meal.
- Carrots – These were my dog’s favorite growing up! Baby carrots are a super easy snack that’s healthy too. A raw carrot is packed with antioxidants and is sure to give your pet a little something to chew on as well!
- Apple Slices – You may have read our article before about making sure to keep apple seeds away from your dogs, but apple slices are perfectly fine. Once sliced and cored, they provide a high fiber, crispy treat that you and your dog can enjoy. Especially dipped in peanut butter!
- There are other treats you can share with your pet as well, but we thought these were some of the easier and more unique ones. Whether you’re out on a picnic together sharing carrots or planning a nutritional meal, these “people” foods are sure to give your pet just as much nutrition as they are great taste!
