Things You Should Know

If you have some exposure to packaged meals/side dishes or related types of products, you might already know what some of the words mean. But we don't want to assume that you know and make you struggle while reading product descriptions. Here are the 2 words you need to know:

  • Eating (Eat): Eating is the ingestion of food, typically to provide a heterotrophic organism with energy and to allow for growth. Animals and other heterotrophs must eat in order to survive — carnivores eat other animals, herbivores eat plants, omnivores consume a mixture of both plant and animal matter, and detritivores eat detritus.
  • Entrée (Entree): An entrée in modern French table service and that of much of the English-speaking world is a dish served before the main course of a meal. Outside North America, it is generally synonymous with the terms hors d'oeuvre, appetizer or starter.

Appropriate Price Range

Packaged meals/Side dishes are normally priced in the range of$0.21 - $148.97 per item. So if a packaged meals/side dish's price is outside of this range, you should question if the product is actually sold, or the price is worth it.
