Journal Club 3: Self-Perceived Cooking Skills in Emerging Adulthood Predict Better Dietary Behaviors and Intake 10 Years Later: A Longitudinal Study

(Recorded 10/8/18)

About the Webinar

A growing body of evidence suggests that developing skills in cooking and meal preparation is associated with healthier diets and eating behaviors. Yet, most of this research is based on cross-sectional data or short-term evaluations of cooking interventions. In this presentation I will discuss findings of a longitudinal study which suggest that self-perceived cooking skills during early adulthood predict better eating behaviors over the longer term. Related JNEB article
