Key Highlights
The number of stay-at-home dads in the US doubled over the 10 years between 1990 and 2010. At an estimated two million dads in 2014, this number is still low compared to the overall workforce. The average US dads working hours in 2010 were 37, but he also carried out 10 hours of housework and seven of childcare.

Dads are significantly more likely to look for on-pack ethical claims than men without kids. In general, dads are slightly more willing than men without kids to trust food manufacturers product claims. Dads are also significantly more likely than non-dads to use dietary supplements and to buy functional products with added health benefits.

Research carried out by Unilever for Dove Men+Care into the self-image of dads as dads, and how that role affects their perception of the rest of their lives, highlights the need to make dads feel important and valuable in their role as dads even when selling child-unrelated products.
