The study draws up a holistic report on how kids consume brands - with a special focus on food, beverages and related categories. A segment on how media is consumed - with a special focus on television and emerging media also forms an integral part of the study. It also unearths the level of peer influence and its implications on the kids? purchase & consumption, their ambitions, key drivers and barriers to choice, lifestyle, the amount of pester power they yield, parental pressure and much more. In a nutshell KidScan serves the purpose of a handbook for marketers relevant to the space.

The findings are derived from a robust sample size of 2500 kids in the age group of 5 years- 14 years and an equal number of parents, belonging to New SEC A, B & C households, spread across 14 cities in the country.

The study also highlights the real time record of kid?s regular activities and analyzes the communication conundrum to get the brand message across.
