Evaluation Results Overall the average ‘healthy’ score of ‘healthy’ items increased from 13 to 18. This was accompanied by a decrease over the same time in the ‘unhealthy’ score from 9 to 5. Seven of the eight participants had a greater positive difference in favour of an improved diet. A well validated, but simple, measure of mental well-being provided evidence that after taking part in the Cook Well, Work Well programme participants’ scores had significantly increased suggesting that learning new skills and eating more healthily was associated with an improvement in their self-esteem or self confidence.
Further Information and Case Study “I didn’t realise I would be able to lose weight by learning to cook. I’ve learnt new skills, more about food and taking part has made life a lot better for me.” Simon Hunnybel, PepsiCo driver. www.letsgetcooking.org.uk
