Middlesex-London Infant Feeding Survey

The Middlesex-London Health Unit is responsible to the Ministry of Health & Long Term Care for tracking and understanding the infant feeding practices of young families in our community. This is done through a brief survey that is completed either online or over the telephone. The survey asks questions such as how you feed your baby, whether or not you are breastfeeding, when you introduced solids, and what support services you have used.


How to Participate

Shortly after the birth of your baby, you will be asked to provide consent to be contacted to do the survey. If you give consent, you will then be asked to provide your telephone number and email address. When your baby is 6 months old and again at 12 months old, we will call or email you and ask you to answer the survey questions.

Who can Participate?

Participants must:

  • Live in the City of London or Middlesex County
  • Speak English well enough to complete a telephone interview or online survey
  • Have either a phone or internet access
  • Have a baby who is less than 6 months old

Who can I contact about the survey?

If you have questions about the survey or if you would like to participate, please contact us by email or phone.
