What is the definition of a seder meal?

The word 'seder' literally means 'order'. The first night of Passover in Israel and the first two nights outside of Israel are observed by this religious service held in the home. Although dinner is eaten in the middle of the seder, the term 'seder meal' is not an accurate term.

During the seder, prayers are recited and the story of the Israelite exodus from Egypt is read. Symbolic foods that represent different aspects of the Israelites' slavery are eaten, these foods are not a part of the meal eaten.
