Infant SmartIntake 1 Study

Study Type


Study Purpose

Infant feeding habits are often difficult to accurately measure, which can easily lead to feeding a baby too much or too little.


The Infant SmartIntake™ focus group will ask for feedback from infant caregivers about a smartphone mobile app to assess the diet of infants aged 1 to 6 months.

About the Study

Eligible participants will attend a training session at Pennington Biomedical to learn how to use the SmartIntake™ app and answer questions about their health history and current infant feeding practices.


Following the training session, participants will use the SmartIntake™ app for 3 days to assess the diet of their infants on their own and then return to Pennington Biomedical for a focus group to discuss their experiences with the app.
