Why I love my Air Fryer!

I’ve been using an air fryer for years now and I have to say I really love it! I’ve spent years coming up with Easy Family Meals and Easy Snacks For Kids but having an air fryer really has been a game changer!

Air frying is is brilliant for making quick and easy meals for kids when your meal prep game maybe hasn’t been on point! 

Air Fryer Recipes For Kids

The internet is absolutely jam packed with air fryer meals and recipes at the moment, but I’ve noticed that a lot of them are geared towards more adult meals than kids friendly ones.

 So I wanted to put together a list of simple recipes that are more aimed towards kids.

Air Fryer Chicken & Cheese Pinwheels

You only need four simple ingredients to make these pinwheels and they are perfect for a quick lunch at home or they can be packed into lunch boxes for school or days out with the kids.

Air Fryer Cheesy Sausage Bites

These cheesy sausage bites are now a firm family favorite in our house! My kids absolutely love finger foods and these bites made with cheddar cheese and your preferred choice of sausage meat tick all the boxes!

Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets

I’m yet to meet a kid that doesn’t like chicken nuggets but they don’t always have the healthiest reputation! So rather than cooking them in the deep fryer or the oven, pop these in your air fryer basket where you’ll use less oil, less time and and have a much healthier alternative!
