Forget the morning rush to get out the door on time, new research by Knoppers from Storck UK, reveals that the after school period is the most challenging time for mums. Almost two thirds of mums (59%) named 3.30pm – 5pm as the time when they most need a pick me up after a tiring and busy day.
A huge 82% of kids attend one or more after school activity and more than half (54%) of these take place at multiple locations, meaning mum is often driving all over the place – no wonder parental burnout is on the rise.
Vanessa O’Farrell, Knoppers Marketing Manager, comments: “The research reveals that in today’s hectic world, there have never been more demands on mum’s time, from confidante, to chauffeur, to personal assistant. According to our research, nearly all mums (91%) need a pick me up during the day, whilst 67% feel their children also need one too, to help give energy for after school commitments (34%) and to keep them going until dinner (36%).
“With this in mind, we have introduced Knoppers, a crispy baked wafer with milky hazelnut layers and a chocolatey coating that offers that much needed pick me up for mum that her kids will love too. It’s ideal for giving kids an energy boost without ruining their appetite ahead of dinner – the top two priorities for mums when choosing an after school snack.”
With wholesome ingredients of milk, hazelnuts and wheat, Knoppers is a great choice with less guilt for those looking for a tasty snack and for busy mums looking to keep their kids’ hunger at bay.
