Top 10 Air Fryer Recipes for Kids

Air Fryer Recipes That Are So Easy Kids Can Make Them

My kids love cereal. They eat cereal all the time, like probably 2-3 times a day. Lucky for them, and me, we have a money allowance system that enables them to buy as much cereal as they want. And, oh boy, do they eat it up. Because of this, its been my mission to discover easy and simple air fryer recipes that I love to make and that they love to eat (so we can cut back on the cereal just a little bit).

My kids love the air fryer because not only am I cooking more delicious and fun dinners, but they love to use it too! Today, I am sharing with you some of my kids’ favorite recipes that they like to make in the air fryer! These recipes are healthier than cereal and way more delicious too! They are so simple, easy, and tasty that I always make sure I have the recipe ingredients in the pantry for them to whip up whenever they need it!

So, without further ado, here are our top 10 kid friendly air fryer recipes that are so easy my kids make them!
