How to Avoid The Hangry Teenager with Banquet Mega Meals or Bowls

Conagra Brands sponsored this post, but the opinions are my own.
If you have a teen in your home this is not any shocking news. Teens eat a lot of food,  especially if they are involved in sports. My husband should have invented the word, Hangry,
since he would always say I was a better person when I had snacks. Well teens are moody already, so when they are hungry, watch out. Growing up in the TV dinner era, I rarely think
about having frozen meals in my freezer . Well not until kids were coming and going at all hours for dinner and not every meal I cook at home tastes great warmed up.

We were recently introduced to new Banquet Mega Meals or Bowls. The Mega Bowls are not yet in my area so we picked up the Backyard BBQ Combo meal.
Each meal contains grilled white meat chicken, two ribbed shaped pork and chicken patties and creamy mashed potatoes. But more importantly, each meal contains 33 grams of Protein.

What did our teenagers think about Mega Meals from Banquet:

  • These meals are not called mega for nothing. Definitely more than a snack for teens, but would be plenty for a meal on the go.
  • PRICE: you can’t beat the price at Walmart. These meals were only $2.19 at my Walmart, which is faster than any fast food restaurant.


My kids more likely would get excited about the other new flavor Mega Bowls that are out but not in our stores locally.
  • Chicken Fajita Mega Bowl: A bowl of chicken breast and ranchero sauce, layered on a bed of rice, and topped with a blend of red and green bell peppers, onions, corn, black beans and cheese.
  • Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese Mega Bowl

Look out for these flavors as well in your Freezer Section at Walmart. Plus print a coupon. 
  • Steak Mega Bowl
  • Fried Chicken Mega Bowl
  • Salisbury Steak (talk about memory lane)

What would your kids think about these meals? Would you stock your freezer at these prices for the on the go nights when you were not able to make a homemade meal? The portion size
is perfect for those hangry teens.
