dc.description.abstractIt has been hypothesized that a reduction in the awareness of food skills in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) community may be contributing to the increasing rates of overweight and obesity. To date, a valid and reliable tool for examining the level of food skills among a population has not been created. This study sought to create such a tool through achieving face validity from key stakeholders, content validity from an expert panel and construct validity through factor analysis. Upon ethics approval, the validated tool was piloted among a selected number of residents in the KFL&A County through a telephone survey company, CCI Research. Results were examined and a Cronbach’s alpha was used to measure the internal consistency of the tool. This tool will contribute to subsequent studies that aim to identify gaps in food skills among targeted populations. Future studies may also use the data to guide individualized food skills education programs for residents.en_US
