People who cook at home six to seven times per week eat fewer calories and less fat and sugar without even trying, according to a study of nearly 10,000 adults. Plus, people who frequently cook consume more fruits and vegetables and are 28 percent more likely to have a normal body mass index and body fat percentage, according to another study.
Of course, not all home cooking is healthy. But because you have the power to choose your ingredients, cooking methods, and portion sizes, your meals can be as healthy as you want them to be.
Cooking at home also encourages families to sit around the table and eat together, which is especially important for kids. Children who eat dinner with their parents five or more days per week eat healthier, perform better at school, have better relationships with their parents, and are less likely to have trouble with drugs and alcohol when they’re teenagers.
