21 Slow Cooker Recipes For Kids

Kid-friendly slow cooker recipes your little ones won't fuss about!

21 Slow Cooker Recipes For Kids

It's hard finding easy meal ideas that the kids will actually get excited about. Most little ones are super finicky when it comes to food, which makes the parent's job of finding kid-friendly meal ideas all that much more difficult. Why? Because it's not just the kids we have to think about. It's the time it takes to make a dish and the effort that goes into it. It's the cost and nutritional value. 

All of these factor into how we go about putting together our weekly meal plans. The good news is, we've compiled a list of kid-friendly breakfast, lunch, and weeknight dinner ideas to help you deal with a fussy eater at home! These slow cooker recipes for kids cater to budding taste buds that don't necessarily crave something healthy. 

And the best part? All of these recipes are exclusive to your slow cooker, which means they require minimal effort!

Kid-Friendly Breakfast Ideas

There's nothing like a delicious, warm, freshly cooked breakfast to get you up and moving in the morning. These slow cooker breakfast ideas definitely check all of those boxes, and they've been proven to satisfy the taste buds of little barbarians who want nothing to do with more "adult" breakfast options. 

Kid-Friendly Lunch Ideas

Lunch is always a tricky meal to plan for because you don't want anything too dense and nothing too complicated either. It's that midday meal we often reserve for leftovers or a random assortment of cold cuts and snacks. With kids, however, last night's dinner tends not to go over too well. Thankfully, these easy slow cooker lunch options are ones you can plan ahead for, and they'll be sure to fill your child's belly. 

Kid-Friendly Dinner Ideas

This is arguably the most important section in this list. These kid-friendly slow cooker recipes are our most delicious, addicting, and crave-worthy meals for people of all ages. They're comforting and delicious, and we hope they lead to many relaxing evenings after a long day of work, taking care of the kids, and running errands. 

Kid-Friendly Treats

You didn't think we'd dish up all of these amazing slow cooker meals and skip dessert, did you? Of course not! These wonderful slow cooker desserts are so much fun, you won't want to wait to get started. Dive in!
