Research conducted amongst 10,000 people found a growing awareness of the benefits of eating well.
Of those asked, 78% said they did not want Scots to be seen as the sick nation of Europe.
In addition, 58% were more willing to try healthier home cooked food than a year before, with 17% more people understanding the dangers of saturated fats.
The research also found that 65% were more willing to try a salad.
The results come following a study commissioned by the Scottish Home Baking Awards (SHBA) ahead of its third annual competition, which will be hosted by Michelle McManus.
Melanie Andrews, founder of SHBA, said: "The Scots are a proud nation and that means we don't want to be seen to be the sick nation of Europe. They are trying and enjoying healthier food in ever larger numbers and that is because messages about healthy eating are getting through.
"Improving standards and encouraging Scots to make and eat the best home cooking possible will continue to improve the Scottish diet."
Tackling poor diet has been highlighted as a priority for the Scottish Government, with the new aim to reduce calorie intake by 125 calories per person per day.
