Summary Whether it_s because we_re time-poor, or just disinterested in cooking, statistics show that the demand for convenience foods in Australia continues to grow. This program examines the evolution of the convenience food industry, from basic cake mixes to complete heat-and-eat meals. The impact that microwave technology has had on the kind of food products being made, and the correct way to use microwave ovens to reheat and cook food are also addressed. The program explains the difference between _meal solutions_ and _home meal replacements_ - or HMRs, and visits a boutique company catering for customers who want additive-free HMRs made fresh daily. The program also highlights the influence that migrants have had, and continue to have, on the convenience foods we eat. Viewers are encouraged to explore the reasons behind the popularity of convenience foods, and to question the nutritional and economic value of these products. The program considers what else we might be missing out on if we lose the ability, and the confidence, to prepare and cook our own food
