Abstract

SHOULD FUTURE DIETETIC GRADUATES KNOW HOW TO COOK?

 

ABSTRACT

Dietetic educators have students in their classrooms that do not know how to cook.  The many causes of this non-cooking society are discussed.  Challenges facing educators include how to address this problem efficiently, effectively, and in a manner that is not cost prohibitive to the student or the university.  This article looks at the importance of cooking skills in a Registered Dietitian’s career and the American Dietetic Association’s emphasis on these skills regardless of the dietitian’s area of practice.  Various solutions are presented for the dietetic educator.
