Cooking and Confidence


“At the beginning of the program, there was a big difference between the males and females in their cooking confidence, where the females were more confident at the start of the program. And then by the end of the program, the males and females were both equally confident.”

Dr. Joanna Rees talks to us about her recent research on the effects of taking a healthy cooking class on the mental health and confidence of participants. 

Dr. Rees is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian with a background as a chef and sports coach, currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the area of gut health. Her particular area of interest is how we should target nutrition as a preventive strategy to tackle population issues such as declining mental and physical health.
