Of the 325 million U.S. population, 73.8 million are children aged 0 to 17 years—with the demographic expected to increase in racial diversity and grow to 80 million by 2050.

Many brands are responding through cleaner ingredient decks free from artificial additives or preservatives and featuring natural flavors and colors.
