Study short name: OzFITS
Study full name: OzFITS: The Australian Feeding Infants and Toddlers Study
Principle Investigator: Merryn Netting
Administering Institute: South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute
Major funding source: SAHMRI Women and Kids theme and Nestle Nutrition Institute
Study focus: Epidemiology
Study design: Observational
Main study aim: To determine what children under two years of age are eating and drinking, and how today’s diets and feeding practices compare to Australian dietary guidelines.
Additional study information: The first two years of a baby’s life set the foundation for dietary patterns later in life. Previous national nutrition surveys did not include children under two years, therefore information on their diets is limited.
In this study, we would like to find out what children under two years of age are eating and drinking. Our study also aims to find out how today’s diets and feeding practices compare to Australian dietary guidelines.
With this information, we will provide better nutrition information to parents and caregivers about nutrition in the early years.
Study population: Parents or primary caregiver of a child between 0 and 24 months of age without major health issues that affect feeding behaviour.
Study status: Recruitment ongoing, through December 2021.
