Objective: To evaluate the 2016 International Chefs Day cooking workshops Art on a Plate. Design: Nonexperimental pretest-posttest design Setting: Art on a Plate workshops with children from 14 countries in Asia, America, and Europe. Participants: A total of 433 workshop participants aged 4−14 years (mean age, 8.6 years). Intervention: Instructed by a chef, children in the workshops created a self-chosen design on their plate with a spinach−fruit salad. Main Outcome Measures: Before and after the workshop, a questionnaire assessing liking and willingness to eat or taste; hunger was assessed using the Teddy the Bear method and emotions were assessed using the Self-assessment Manikin. The event coordinator evaluated salad intake. Analysis: Linear and generalized linear (logit) mixed models were used to test statistical differences before and after the workshop. Results: The workshop resulted in a small increase in liking (n = 409; P = .02) and person control (n = 375; P<.001) and a decrease in hunger (n = 379; P<.001). A total of 30% of children increased their liking scores, 18% decreased them, and 52% did not change them. Significant associations of liking and change in liking with salad intake were in the expected direction. Conclusion and Implications: This study showed the positive effect of a cooking workshop on children’s salad liking across a selection of countries worldwide. Further research and novel methods are needed to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of cooking activities in real-life settings across countries. Key Words: acceptance, children, cooking, meal preparation, vegetable intake (J Nutr Educ Behav. 2019;000:1 −7.)
