Many of the more than 43 million kids have become quite food savvy as a result of watching TV cooking shows with their foodie parents and being exposed to new foods while traveling and eating out. This has created both opportunities and challenges for developers and marketers, as kids have become more willing to explore new foods, but at the same time more discriminating when it comes to food selection. Marketers’ greatest concern used to be the gatekeeper, who ultimately made the decision to purchase a product. But today, the little foodies of the world expect more from what they are being served … more in terms of presentation, taste, and quality.

Fact is, the kids’ food market is a broad and complex one, spanning numerous categories and product segments. In Kids Food and Beverage Market in the U.S., Packaged Facts qualifies a food as being a kids’ food when it has a taste kids love; nutrition kids need; or entertainment kids crave. Ideally the product possesses all three of these characteristics. This is accomplished through formulation, packaging, and marketing.

There are a number of reasons why food marketers are developing products specifically for the 2- to 12-year-old age group. For starters, this demographic represents about one-seventh of the population. It is also the most influential demographic for marketers. Life-long dietary habits are established during this 10-year age span, and brand loyalty begins. These factors and more are influencing the $10 billion market for children’s food and beverages.

Scope of Report

This report focuses on retail-packaged food and beverage products, or simply foods, targeted to children in the 2- to 12-year-old age group. Packaged Facts divides the kids market into three segments:

  • 2- to 5-year-olds, or preschoolers;
  • 6- to 9-year-olds, or younger kids; and
  • 10- to 12-year-olds, or tweens.

Report Methodology

The information contained in this report was obtained from primary and secondary research. Primary research included proprietary Packaged Facts consumer survey data, consultations with food and beverage market sources and on-site examination of retail venues. Secondary research included extensive Internet canvassing and research- and data-gathering from relevant consumer business and trade publications; company reports including annual reports, press releases, and investor conference calls; company profiles in trade and consumer publications; government reports; and other food and beverage market reports by Packaged Facts.

Our consumer demographics analysis draws primarily on data compiled by Experian Simmons, New York. Each year, Experian Simmons surveys a large sample of consumers about their personal and household buying habits. The results cited in this report are based on the Spring 2010 survey (April 2009 to June 2010), and on a sample size of 23,572 adults, which represents approximately 115 million households. Of these households, 22%, or 25,085, have children under the age of 12-years old.

Additionally, data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) provides insight into children and the obesity epidemic. Data on new product introductions are based on Product Launch Analytics, a Datamonitor service. Various sales estimates and data pertaining to marketers of children’s food and beverage products are partially derived from figures based on SymphonyIRI sales tracked through U.S. supermarkets and grocery stores, drugstores, and mass merchandisers (including Target and Kmart, but excluding Walmart) with annual sales of $2 million or more.
