TV Dinner (also called frozen dinner, microwave meal or ready meal) is a prepackaged, frozen meal which usually comes in a flat cardboard box. It requires very little preparation and contains all the elements for a single-serving meal. TV Dinner is the trademark for a brand of packaged meal developed in 1953 for C.A. Swanson & Sons (later acquired by the Campbell Soup Company in 1955). (The name in full was TV Brand Frozen Dinner). In informal usage, "TV Dinner" eventually became synonymous with any prepackaged dinner purchased frozen in a supermarket and heated at home. The original TV Dinner came in an aluminum tray and was heated in an oven. Most frozen food trays are now made of microwaveable material.
