Abstract: Traditional clinical interventions yield few positive effects on diet. The Healthy Teaching Kitchen (HTK) program implemented by the Veterans Health Administration at sites across the United States delivers interactive nutrition and culinary education, guided instruction, and social opportunities for patients and caregivers. We report HTK outcomes of veterans' self-reported acceptability, self-efficacy for dietary change, and dietary and cooking habits. The HTK program is acceptable and feasible and may empower participants to improve health.
