Healthy-Up Frozen Meals

Timeless Nutrition Tip

Are you often in a hurry and find yourself serving frozen dinners?

Healthy Up Frozen Meals

If you are, don't fret! You can make them healthier on the fly.

Here are a few tips to help maximize the nutrition from frozen dinners:

  • Read the nutrition labels on frozen dinners and seek out dinners that have fewer than 15 grams of fat, 400 calories and 800 milligrams of sodium.
  • For Entrees, check the nutrition label for fewer than 300 calories and 10 grams of fat.
  • If the entree or dinner doesn't seem like enough to satisfy, add a salad or vegetable, or both. More often than not these dinners and entrees provide less than one serving of vegetables.
  • For a beverage drink a cup of skim milk or if that doesn't appeal to you, eat yogurt for dessert. Frozen dinners and entrees are also often lacking in calcium.
