Needed-parents input on infant feeding

Posted by: karenmsikar London Posts: 1

What, when and how parents feed their infants can influence if they will be overweight or obese later. Currently, different studies looking at programs to prevent childhood obesity often measure different outcomes. This makes it difficult to compare how effective these programs are.

We would like to invite you to participate in a research study. The aim of this study is to develop a Core Outcome Set (COS) of infant feeding outcomes for assessing interventions including children up to 1 year old. This will help to improve efforts to prevent childhood obesity. An infant feeding COS is an agreed and standardised set of outcomes that are relevant to health professionals, parents and researchers.

As a parent of a child up to 1 year old you can provide essential expert information about infant feeding and your contribution to developing this COS is invaluable.

We are asking you to participate in this study by completing the survey in the link below. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. You will be asked to complete this survey 3 times in total. You will be emailed reminders to complete Round 2 at the beginning of December, and Round 3 at the end of January. This helps us achieve agreement on what outcomes are most important.

If you are interested in taking part please go to the COS IF survey here: Follow Link

Thank you
Karen Matvienko-Sikar
