How healthy are those Lean Cuisine frozen dinner entres?

They are really good, but is "lean cuisine" really a lean meal?

    The calories tend to be lower than some other frozen dinners, but the sodium content is a killer -- literally. My father-in-law developed congestive heart failure after a steady diet of Lean Cuisine and other frozen entrees for several months after his wife died and he had to cook for himself.

    Plus which, I think the box tastes better than its contents. As far as I'm concerned, the meals are only moderately lean, and the cuisine is nearly non-existent.

    they have less calories and sodium than most.

    there also isn't a lot of food in the box.

    the word lean has nothing to do with nutritional content -- just the lack of calories.

    Probably better than a sandwich and chips for lunch. I like taking them to work, they're not so big as to make me so full that I want a nap!

    Personally, I think that anything that is a "meal in a box" or loaded up with preservatives can't be all that great for you.

    If anything takes you more then 10 seconds to read the ingredient list, don't eat it.

    They are low in fat and calories but very high in sodium. Eat in moderation.
