Frozen dinners give busy people a way to feed themselves and their families healthy meals in minutes. Frozen foods have come a long way from processed mystery meats, mealy mashed potatoes and mushy vegetables. Manufacturers have refined preparation, storage and reheating techniques to create healthy, flavourful, gourmet-quality meals and entrees. Frozen meals also expose people to foods they might not otherwise eat, such as ethnic foods with long preparation times, or specialty foods that may be too expensive to obtain fresh.
