In 2015, No Kid Hungry worked with Altarum Institute, an independent health systems research organization, to conduct the first-ever long-term study of the program. Proving what we have heard anecdotally from participants for years, the analysis found that Cooking Matters has a powerful, sustained impact that is significantly greater than changes that would have occurred without intervention. After learning Cooking Matters strategies, the study found that families have a more positive attitude about cooking, leading them to cook more often; are eating and making healthier, more budget-friendly meals; and are more confident that they'll be able to stretch their food dollars each month.
You can find the long-term study results here.

When it comes to kids' meals, fast-food and full-service restaurants are doing better at reducing calories, a new study finds. However, parents should realize that most meals on children's menus exceed dietary guidelines for healthy levels of fat, saturated fat and sodium, according to a study of the nation's most popular food chains published in the April issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
Watching videos of kids eating vegetables may encourage small children to follow suit, a new study suggests. Preschoolers who watched a short video of kids eating bell peppers later ate more of the vegetables themselves, the researchers reported in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
