Food skills programs have been introduced in many communities partly due to growing concerns of children and youth avoiding healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables. These programs often involve public health units to promote healthy eating and teach participants about nutrition, how to prepare and cook meals, safely handle and store food, read labels, and other food related skills.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide key findings from a literature review on food skills programs and discuss implications for public health.
- Define food skills and explain the five generally accepted categories of skillsets
- Describe and explain scientific evidence on the effectiveness of food skills interventions as they relate to fruit and vegetable consumption among children and youth
- Discuss the implications of the research for public health
