The Evolving Taste of Children

Adults aren’t the only ones with increasingly sophisticated palates; children’s tastes are evolving too. According to Mintel’s March 2008 Kid’s Snacking Report, 30% of kids 6-12-year-olds report that unusual flavors make snaking more fun, while 67% liked to try new kinds of snacks. So what kind of flavors are piquing kid’s interest these days? Check out the list of Up-and Coming Savory Flavors for Kids by International Flavors and Fragrances. These flavors definitely move beyond the macaroni and cheese from a box that made my day when I was in middle school!
