Research and Markets: Global Children's Food & Drinks Market Trends & Opportunities 2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/px7x68/childrens_food) has announced the addition of the "Children's Food & Drinks: Global Trends & Opportunities" report to their offering.

The focus of the report is primarily on children aged between 5 and 14, although products for younger children/toddlers and for older teens are discussed briefly where relevant. Baby foods are specifically excluded from this report.

The rationale behind this focus is that younger children (i.e. those aged under 5) are mainly targeted by suppliers of baby and toddler foods. In contrast, older children are more likely to demand food and beverages associated with adults. As a result, this age group is rarely targeted specifically as a separate consumer group, although many sectors of the food industry do make use of promotional and marketing tools such as character merchandising, in order to influence parents' shopping.

The product sectors discussed in more detail within the report are those which feature a significant number of products targeted at children.

These are as follows:

- Dairy foods (i.e. cheese, flavoured milks, ice cream and yoghurts and chilled dairy desserts);

- Bakery goods (i.e. biscuits, cakes and pastries);

- Cereal products (i.e. breakfast cereals and cereal bars);

- Confectionery (i.e. chocolate, sugar confectionery and gum);

- Savoury snacks (i.e. crisps and other forms of savoury/extruded snacks);

- Frozen foods (i.e. frozen potato products, frozen fish and meat products and other frozen foods);

- Soft drinks (i.e. still fruit-based drinks and bottled water).

A number of other categories where children's products are available do exist within the global food industry, and some are assuming increasing significance. Notable examples include canned foods (e.g. canned pasta), chilled foods (e.g. ready meals) and ready-to-drink (RTD) iced teas.
