What you need to know

Economic progress leads to high spending power

India's strong economy has led to high consumption across the board. Increasing disposable income and smaller families has resulted in parents purchasing high-ticket and high-quality products for their kids.

Rising awareness about diet and food

However, penetration of social media and government initiatives, like banning junk food in schools, has led to heightened awareness among parents about kids' diets. Parents are very cautious about what their kids eat and look for better ingredients and low fat content.

Parents are willing to spend on healthy food

Leverage parents' awareness and spending power to offer healthy and nutritious products for kids. Parents value nutrition and health and are willing to pay if the product contributes to a healthy diet.

Cater to the needs of the modern parent who is concerned about the health of their kids. Offer an affordable range of products that have added value in terms of ingredients or fortification. Focus on healthy indulgences to address the need for low fat content in food. Nidhi Sinha
