Wikipedia: Lunchables
Lunchables is a brand of food and snacks manufactured by Kraft Heinz and marketed under the Oscar Mayer brand in the US and Canada, and manufactured by Mondelēz and marketed under the Dairylea brand in the UK. They were initially introduced in 1988 in Seattle before being released nationally in 1989.

Wikipedia: Meal, Ready-to-Eat
The Meal, Ready-to-Eat – commonly known as the MRE – is a self-contained, individual field ration in lightweight packaging bought by the U.S. Department of Defense for its service members for use in combat or other field conditions where organized food facilities are not available. While MREs should be kept cool, they do not need to be refrigerated. MREs replaced the canned MCI, or Meal, Combat, Individual rations, in 1981, and is the intended successor to the lighter LRP ration developed by the United States Army for Special Forces and Ranger patrol units in Vietnam

Lunchables are just MREs, marketed toward kids, with worse packaging, and worse nutrition.
