An official with the Economic Information and Consumption Committee of Jiangsu Province said that based on the latest numbers, Jiangsu has about 800,000 new babies each year, and each family would spend about 900 yuan for their babies every month.
In total, the consumption for children’s food each year nationwide would reach 2.47 trillion yuan.
“More and more families are paying attention to nutrition when buying food for their kids,” said the official.
However, experts say that as China has yet come up with food standard specifically for children, some food are adding food additives by the standard for adult food, which would bring risks to kids’ health.
An expert with Nanjing’s nutrition research center said that it is not meaningful for parents to have their kids to take nootropic drugs to enhance their intelligence. (Source : news.foodmate)
