A sample of 215 undergraduate students enrolled in two classes—an introductory food class and a textile class—at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, participated in a research study to examine food knowledge. All students participating in the study completed a questionnaire that addressed their attitudes about cooking.

Food is a valuable tool for teaching nutrition information to clientele. For students planning to enter the dietetic field, understanding food is essential.
