When the thought of Ramen makes you ill because you've had it five days in a row for breakfast, lunch, and dinner trying to avoid the dining hall, have no fear! There are solutions to your problems!!

1. Kid's Kitchen. They make small, microwavable containers of a a variety of foods. Their website gives a list that includes the following:

  • Beans & Wieners
  • Beefy Mac
  • Cheezy Mac 'N Beef
  • Cheezy Mac 'N Cheese
  • Cheezy Mac 'N Franks
  • Mini Beef Ravioli
