MINNEAPOLIS — Bellisio Foods on Monday announced the expansion of its EatingWell line of frozen meals. The line, developed in partnership with EatingWell magazine publisher Meredith, has added six new frozen meals to its offerings.

The new varieties are butter chicken masala, Thai style peanut chicken, French-inspired chicken, steak carne asada, gnocchi with garden vegetables and chicken and fingerling potatoes. All of new meals except the Thai style peanut chicken are gluten-free.

“We’re excited about these additions because they bring new and interesting flavors to our already successful EatingWell product line,” says Ken Stickevers, president, Bellisio Foods. “Plus, our consumers asked for more gluten-free options, and we’re happy to deliver that, along with an amazing vegetarian gnocchi dish that serves up 14 g of protein.”

The additions join the existing EatingWell meals lineup of creamy pesto chicken, spicy Asian-inspired chicken, Korean-inspired beef, cherry port pork, chicken and wild rice stroganoff and Vermont cheddar mac and cheese. Each of the entrees starts with one cup of vegetables, offers 13 g or more of protein and includes whole grains and meats raised without antibiotics.

“The consumer’s appetite for EatingWell’s food content across all media channels has never been stronger,” Meredith VP brand licensing Elise Contarsy said. “The positive response to last year’s frozen entrée launch demonstrates we’re also delivering what she wants and expects from the brand in the grocery store.”

The meals will be available beginning in June.
