Kid Friendly Instant Pot Dinner Recipes

Some of you may remember when I found the perfect easy Instant Pot recipes for beginners. Well, since then, I’ve gotten an Instant Pot of my own and I’ve actually had a chance to use it a few times with some success.

My main reason for buying an electric pressure cooker was to help us change up our dinners. We had really gotten into a funk and ended up, on so many nights, with nothing to eat and no dinner plans.

We were all pretty tired of the usual dinners we were making. I was tired of cooking them, and the kids were tired of eating them.

So, now I’m so excited to try some new recipes and really give my Instant Pot a workout. I spent hours looking for kid-tested and kid-approved recipes. That means reading through all of the comments of these dinner recipes and looking for comments by folks who actually made the dish and said things like, “My whole family loved this!” and “Even my picky eater ate this!” and “This is the only way I’ll make this ever again.”.

Honestly, I was really looking for some Instant Pot dinner recipes I would actually be willing to make for my own family and foods I’d be willing to bet they would enjoy eating. There is a lot of comfort food on this list. My family loves meals like this and at the end of the day, if I’m going to take the time to cook something up I want it to be something I know they’ll eat!

Here are 25 kid friendly Instant Pot dinner recipes, organized by main protein. I know you’ll find your family’s new favorite meal.

The meals look great. I don’t know what kind of kids you have, but my kids wouldn’t eat half of that. I, on the other hand, will gladly try each and every one of them.
