Yes, although as with all foods, it depends on the quality. It is best to go for brands that use good quality meat sources (labelled as Chicken, Lamb, Poultry, etc.) more than meat by-products.

What is a common Dutch biscuit?

The Dutch have a sweet tooth: enter any grocery store and you will see shelf after shelf of cookies, cakes and sweet breads. It would be hard to list a common Dutch cookie, as there are so many.

Traditionally, cookies are served at tea/coffee time, i.e. elevenish in the morning and fourish in the afternoon. It is said that the Dutch are tight-fisted and will reluctantly offer you one cookie, slamming the lid on the jar as soon as you've made your choice. I have never experienced that, and it is most certain not a custom in my household.

Cookies vary in shape, size, flavor, ingredients and price but they do have to have one quality: they have to be dunkable. One on three people dunks their cookie in their coffee or tea and it is commonly accepted.

Traditional cookies are speculaas (spice cookies) or volkoren biskwietjes (whole grain cookies). Other cookies, that are a little bit more luxurious, would be bokkepootjes (meringue with creamy filling and almonds), froufrous (vanilla wafers) or Jodenkoeken (butter cookies).

How we make advertising strategy of nutritive biscuits for kids?

Focus on the product attributes first in creating the advertising message. What vitamins and minerals might be the most attractive to the family consumer? What use of current nutritional studies might you be able to use to further promote the product in your marketing message?

Branding will be important. Consumers will want to know who their buying from and even if they don't know you yet you will need to integrate a branding strategy into the advertising and even emphasize the brand name, especially if the company is in it's infancy.

I personally would like to see some societal advertising in the mix aimed at kids educating them on taking charge of nutrition for themselves, but then, that is just me.

Consumer Group: Television media, parenting publications, and coupon insertions.

Retail/Distributer: Direct mail, sales calling, PR, and trade publication campaign is what I would suggest.
