Kashi, the premier natural food and lifestyle company, today announced the launch of new, all natural Kashi® Steam Meals—adding to its extensive family of frozen entrees. Available in four great-tasting flavors, including Chicken Fettuccine, Sesame Chicken, Roasted Garlic Chicken Farfalle and Spinach & Artichoke Pasta, the delicious, single-serve Steam Meals offer distinct tastes, unique ingredients and Kashi's signature Kashi Seven Whole Grain™ blend, providing at least 35g of whole grains per serving*.
"We recognize that people don't always have the time to create a meal from scratch, and they struggle to balance busy schedules with making healthful food choices," says Jeff Johnson, senior nutritionist and natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi. "Our Steam Meals offer a nutritious and convenient solution that delivers what people love most about a homemade meal—real, quality ingredients with incredible taste—making them a meal you'll want to eat, not have to eat."
