The report from which this Executive Summary is compiled is for Kids’ Food and Beverages in the U.S. , and the full study abstract is as follows: Childhood obesity and nutrition is all over the news and is serving as the fuel for marketers developing products that appeal to consumers ages 3 to 11, and, of course, their gatekeepers. Since the turn-of-the-century, the dynamics of the kids’ food and beverage business have changed dramatically. For starters, there have been aggressive efforts in making products that really only appeal to kids. For example, 10-plus years ago, ordinary macaroni and cheese (elbow noodles) would be considered a kids’ food. In this report, it is not. To be considered a kids’ food, the noodles must either be in the shape of a cartoon character or the formulation must be enhanced with nutrients that are described as assisting with kids’ growing needs.
Instead, Kids’ Food and Beverages in the U.S., new from Packaged Facts, is broad and complex, spanning numerous categories and market segments, but focusing on products truly targeted to kids. “Kids” might be in the name, the tagline, or in the flagging of “nutrients for proper growth.” They are the kinds of foods and beverages an adult would not otherwise purchase unless there was a kid in the household.
Kids’ Food and Beverages in the U.S. includes an analysis of the market, with historical (2001-2005) and projected (2006-2010) data, and an overview of what products are proving to be winners and losers.
