Chances are, if you have an instant pot, you have kids too. Because us moms like anything that makes our lives easier. And chances are, if you have kids, you probably have a picky eater. So I asked my fellow bloggers and I searched on Pinterest to find recipes that most kids would actually eat. Because let’s face it, the last thing we want to deal with come dinner time is a child that refuses to eat and complains that they don’t like what is for dinner.
Below you will find a great list of kid-friendly instant pot recipes; hopefully you’ll find several that all of your kids will enjoy and gobble up.
