The purpose of this study is to determine if digital photography on a Smartphone and the Remote Food Photography Method (RFPM) can estimate infant formula intake. This is a validation study; there is no hypothesis.
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 ]
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 ]
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 ]
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.
