Infant Nutrition: Evaluation of an Educational Touchscreen Computer Program
Infant Nutrition: Evaluation of an Educational Touchscreen Computer Program for Use in a Spanish-speaking Population of Caregivers of Young Children (APA Phase II)

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.

Objectives are

  1. Evaluate the subjective and objective usability of the touchscreen computer.
  2. Determine whether health knowledge on nutrition topics is enhanced through the use of the computer modules.
