Infant Nutrition: Evaluation of an Educational Touchscreen Computer Program
The investigators are recruiting participants for a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the usability and educational value of a nutrition education touchscreen computer program targeting Spanish-speaking Latina caregivers of children 2 and under.
Participants will be randomized to the intervention group - use the computer program and the control group - do not use the program. They will be asked basic demographic questions, nutrition knowledge questions and computer users will be asked usability questions.
- Evaluate the subjective and objective usability of the touchscreen computer.
- Determine whether health knowledge on nutrition topics is enhanced through the use of the computer modules.
