Looking for easy meals that the whole family will enjoy? Check out these 25 Instant Pot Recipes Kids Love. All Instant Pot recipes are gluten-free and so easy to make. From breakfast to dinner to dessert, there’s something for everyone – including those picky eaters.
I can already hear it… “Mom, what’s for dinner?” And then I start looking through the fridge, freeze and pantry trying to come up with something to feed my family of 5 – including three boys who have very different tastes. I know the struggle so many moms have trying to figure out what to make for dinner that’s healthy, easy to make and will satisfy even the pickiest eaters.
And I know the struggle of trying to make a healthy meal in the midst of homework, after-school activities, and a busy work schedule. That’s one of the many reasons I LOVE my Instant Pot. It’s so easy to make quick meals in the Instant Pot – which is basically an electronic pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice and everything else cooker all-in-one. I use my Instant Pot on most weekday nights because I can add ingredients to it and then still take the kids to their after-school activities and do other things while it cooks. (If you’re just getting started with the Instant Pot, check out my quick start guide Top 10 Instant Pot Tips and Tricks You Need to Know.)
