Further study details as provided by Pennington Biomedical Research Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Grams of prepared infant formula detected in a bottle using the Remote Food Photography Method as a validation measure against grams of prepared formula measured via direct weighing [ Time Frame: Measures will be performed twice about 5-10 days apart ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ability of Remote Food Photography Method to measure kilocalories of prepared infant formula [ Time Frame: Measures will be performed twice about 5-10 days apart ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Inter- and intra- individual preparation variability of kilocalories of prepared infant formula detected


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Variability between caregivers and non-caregivers in kilocalories of prepared infant formula [ Time Frame: Measures will be performed twice about 5-10 days apart ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A caregiver will be defined as an individual who is a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt or uncle, or nanny or babysitter who has provided care to an infant within the last 12 months.
