    Pre-prepared meals

    Hi there,
    I guess here "pre-prepared meals" mean fast food or junk food. Am I right? If so, I am glad about my guess. Can you think of any other alternatives?

    Thanks.

    No. The term can refer to any meals cooked in advance for reheating later.

    Re: Pre-prepared meals

    Not necessarily. To me, it signifies "TV dinners", that is, typical dinners that one would make for oneself at home, but factory-made and placed on a plastic plate and frozen - frozen meals. You buy them from your supermarket in the frozen goods area, not from fast food outlets.

    But when you say "I guess here "pre-prepared meals" means..." there is no 'here'. You haven't given a context or a link, so you can't use 'here' like that.
