From the Paper:

"Since it is a children's market, it may be viable to explore more creative product concepts that would capture the taste of Euro-consumers. Probably researching and developing new flavours, coming from delectable fruits will do. Also, it should be leaning towards a healthier packaging to be able to provide better nutrition to the market. After all, it is still the parents who get a say in buying or not buying the product, and health issues are always a concern for them. This means that the products should have more vitamins and minerals as compared before. Such tactic is viable in that breakfast cereals have become a staple meal for many children and thus it requires all the needed nutrients for growth and development. For those who are lactose intolerant, it might be better for the companies to innovate breakfast cereals in such as way that the taste and nutritional content will not alter. An example of which is cereal cookies or cereal chocolate bars. In this case, we can also capture the market of those who might not be able to consume the typical cold milk and cereals. That is, one must assume that there is a perceived and potential market for such a product."
