For baby boomers, everything was about convenience. Since we all love watching TV every night, it makes sense that we should eat a convenient TV dinner. Why cook, when you can simply get a pre-packed or processed buffet ready frozen meal.
In theory, we can totally understand the logic of buying a whole meal at once. After all, who has time to spend hours in the store, preparing, cooking and washing up? The only snag is we now know that these processed ready meals were usually not so healthy. Still, for baby boomers, that’s what they grew up eating, and they still watch TV, so there’s no harm in eating a TV dinner.
