Back when I was a kid, Swanson's TV dinners were ultra popular and we ate them about once a week when our parents went out and the babysitter came over. I'm sure they were really terrible for you -- filled with all kids of crazy ingredients -- but we loved those little compartmentalized dinners. When I had a kid of my own, I caved and allowed her to get those Kid Cuisine meals from time to time, but I really couldn't stand having her eat that stuff. And I wouldn't exactly call corn -- which is all they ever included -- a healthy vegetable. Not only that, she didn't always like all the parts of those kids meals.
Good news though! A while back I reviewed a vegan chocolate cake over at the Chocolate Blog. (It was really good, btw!!) As a result, I got to talking with someone at Amy's and they took a look at my blog, noticed I had a daughter and sent me out some of their kid's meals for her to try. They sent one of each variety -- Baked Ziti, Mac 'n Cheese and Mexican Quesadilla. Maddie loved them all! But even better -- I loved the ingredient list. Organic, no trans-fats, preservative free. And there were veggies -- real veggies. And fruit! Maddie keeps asking me to get more (unfortunately our local grocery doesn't stock them yet -- but they do carry some Amy's products, so I'm asking them to carry the kids meals.)
If you are looking for a healthy, and quick frozen meal to give to your kids, Maddie and I both highly recommend Amy's Kids Meals. Find out more at their website. (Seriously, I was super happy with these -- give them a try!)
