Home Food Preservation among Families with Young Children
Lorenz, Lorraine J.; Sawicki, Marjorie A.; Elliott, Michael; White, Melissa
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v108 n3 p48-55 2016
The purpose of this study was to determine preservation practices, perceived barriers, and likelihood of parents with young children to home preserve food in the future. Implications of this research relate to family and consumer sciences professionals who endeavor to improve fruit and vegetable intake and provide resources to families and communities. Parents (N = 115) were surveyed at farmers' markets. The preferred method of preservation was freezing, and the common barriers experienced were lack of time, lack of skill, and knowledge. Learning how to preserve food so that it is safe to eat later significantly improved likelihood to preserve food in the future.
