The research also found 61 percent of parents want to break the habit and to ensure there’s more time with their kids.
A spokesman for Swedish Match, producer of ZYN, said: “The pandemic opened up the home/work/life situation with families thrown together 24/7.
“For parents who want to continue using nicotine products, ZYN tobacco-free pouches are a discreet, convenient alternative to smoking or vaping.
“By popping them under your top lip for up to one hour, you’ll never have to miss a moment – and what’s more you can use them undetected.”
The research, conducted through OnePoll – also found 60 percent are trying to give up permanently and 84 percent would be disappointed if their child began smoking or vaping.
ZYN contains pharmaceutical grade nicotine, plant-based fibres, flavourings, stabilisers and sweeteners, and promises not to stain teeth while giving a nicotine hit for up to an hour.
