Smith, Lindsey P.; Popkin, Barry M.; Ng, Shu Wen 2013. Trends in U.S. home food preparation and consumption: analysis of national nutrition surveys and time use studies from 1965-1966 to 2007-2008.

It has been well-documented that Americans have shifted towards eating out more and cooking at home less. However, little is known about whether these trends have continued into the 21st century, and whether these trends are consistent amongst low-income individuals, who are increasingly the target of public health programs that promote home cooking. The objective of this study is to examine how patterns of home cooking and home food consumption have changed from 1965 to 2008 by socio-demographic groups.
