Studies show that supporting youth in developing cooking skills improves dietary intake and can lead to better mental health outcomes. In the Child and Adolescent Cooking Research Library we consolidate research on how cooking is affecting our youths’ physical and mental health.
How does the family environment impact the eating behaviors of children? Do cooking interventions in children result in them eating better throughout their lifespan? Do cooking skills make a difference in university student dietary behaviors? The Child and Adolescent Cooking Research Library exists to capture research being generated to answer these questions.
