Did you know that on a worldwide basis, more people drink goat’s milk than milk from any other single animal? Yet, many parents aren’t aware that goat’s milk is even an option for their toddlers. Toddler formula, sure. Normal milk, yes.
Why choose goat milk?
In a recent survey*, 58% of parents who have never given their children aged 0-12 goat’s milk were unaware of it or its benefits.
Most had no idea goat’s milk might be helpful for those experiencing wind, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, loose stools, reflux and rashes and most didn’t realise that goat’s milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk.
If you are considering the next step in your child’s milk drink needs, we highly recommend having a look at goat toddler milk.
7 benefits of goat’s milk
1. Easier to digest
Some milk is easier to digest than others and goat’s milk is proven to be gentler on the stomach than cow’s milk.
Unlike cow’s milk, goat’s milk has a unique composition with smaller fat and protein molecules making them easier for the body to digest and absorb.
2. A natural source of A2 protein
Australian Goat Milk Toddler Drink contains A2 Goat Protein and very little A1 protein. A1 protein may cause stomach discomfort in certain individuals and is often the reason why people cannot tolerate cow’s milk.
In kids with less developed and immature guts, this may be more of a problem.
Goat toddler milk is a natural pure source of A2 beta-casein protein which is naturally easier on the digestive system and ensures more time for all the good nutrition to get to work.
3. Happier tummies
As A1 protein is sometimes the cause of digestive sensitivities such as tummy pain, bloating, vomiting, constipation, loose stools and nausea – eliminating this from your toddler’s drink means less chance of these bad reactions.
The A1 protein sensitivity may also be responsible for rashes – another thing we all want to avoid!
4. Extra vitamins and minerals
So many vitamins and minerals! In fact, Bubs Australia Goat Toddler Milk Drink has 16 essential vitamins and minerals including:
- Prebiotics (for digestive health)
- Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and B12 (for immunity)
- Calcium, phosphorus and the all-important Vitamin D (for bone development)
- Iodine, iron and zinc (for cognitive function)
5. Loaded with prebiotics
Compared to standard cow’s milk, Australian goat milk also contains higher quantities of prebiotic oligosaccharides.
This specific prebiotic feeds beneficial gut bacteria and wards off yucky bacteria like E. Coli and salmonella. Here’s how they work (it’s actually a pretty cool science lesson).
- When your little one is feeling sick, it’s because harmful bacteria have latched onto the sugars in their gut lining.
- However, the prebiotic oligosaccharides have the same structure as these sugars in the gut lining.
- Harmful bacteria attaches to the oligosaccharides and leave the gut lining alone. These bacteria then get flushed out of the gut and your toddler tum remains bacteria-free.
6. The right kind of fats
While goat’s milk does contain fat, it’s the good fat, known as medium-chain fatty acids (or MCTs). These are loaded with positive health benefits such as promoting energy and brain function, perfect for our growing toddlers.
