Read our information below to discover the key benefits of Oli6 goat’s milk formula.
When you choose a formula for your child, you want to make sure that you can get a continuous supply, because changing formulas abruptly can cause digestive distress for your toddler. Therefore, it is advised to choose a goat’s milk formula that is sourced and manufactured in Australia.
Even though there are many goat’s milk formulas available, Oli6 goat formula is the only brand that manufactures its goat formula in Australia; this means that parents can count on a continuous supply of our natural formula.
Compared to standard cow’s milk, goat’s milk contains six times more prebiotic oligosaccharides; this is good news for toddlers and parents who want the best for their little one, because prebiotic oligosaccharides perform all kinds of functions in the body that contribute to easier digestion.
Prebiotic oligosaccharides are non-digestible fibres; this means that these substances are not absorbed by your toddler’s digestive system, but that they remain in the large intestine. Once prebiotic oligosaccharides enter the large intestine, they start to absorb water and this contributes to smoother bowel movements.
When water meets passing stool, it makes the stool a little softer; this makes stool easier to pass for your toddler and reduces the chances of uncomfortable cramps or other types of digestive distress.
The presence of prebiotic oligosaccharides in the diet of your child also has benefits for healthy gut bacteria, which are present in the digestive system of your toddler. Healthy gut bacteria, also known under the name probiotics, aid digestion. Therefore, having enough of these healthy bacteria inside the large intestine is extremely beneficial for your toddler.
One of the additional functions of prebiotic oligosaccharides is increasing the levels of healthy gut bacteria; this includes lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Of course, by stimulating the levels of healthy gut bacteria, prebiotic oligosaccharides also limit the number of pathogenic bacteria inside the large intestine, subsequently ensuring your toddler is less susceptible to digestive distress and infections.
Our Oli6 goat formula is an excellent source of prebiotic oligosaccharides and ensures your child gets enough of these non-digestible fibres to enjoy good digestion. Naturally, prebiotic oligosaccharides are also present in other foods, so you can complement this formula with foods such as bananas, leeks, tomatoes, garlic and asparagus to improve digestion for your little one.
When your toddler is growing up, it is extremely important to provide them with all the essential vitamins and minerals they need for proper growth and development. Our Oli6 goat formula is nutritionally balanced, which means parents can use our natural formula to provide their toddler with all the vitamins and minerals they need for good growth and development.
Even though most formulas are quite similar where vitamin and mineral content is concerned, there is difference between the natural vitamin levels of cow’s milk and fresh goat’s milk, since goat’s milk contains more vitamin A, magnesium, vitamin C and calcium. Let us take a closer look at each of these vitamins, and determine what benefits they could deliver for the health and development of your toddler.
Vitamin A is the vitamin predominately responsible for the development of vision and sight, more specifically your toddler’s ability to see properly in dimmed light. Of course, vitamin A does have additional functions in the human body; this includes but is not limited tomaintaining healthy teeth, skeletal tissue, soft tissue, mucous membranes and skin.
To ensure your child gets enough vitamin A, you can give your toddler the Oli6 toddler formula. Naturally, you could also incorporate some vitamin A rich foods; this includes most fruits and vegetables. Therefore, parents will have no problems incorporating vitamin A in the diet of their child, providing their toddler is not a fussy eater.
Oli6 formula is often used for toddlers who are struggling with their solid foods for a larger amount of time. Even though fussy eating habits are not uncommon amongst toddlers, it is still important to ensure your child get the vitamin A needed for good growth and development.
The body needs vitamin C to develop and grow, since this vitamin promotes our healing process and helps the body absorb the important mineral iron. Now, since toddlers can get minor injuries from playing every now and then, having enough vitamin C to heal those cuts and scrapes is important. Fortunately, this vitamin C is easily obtained from our formula.
Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in more than three hundred biochemical processes in the body, so having a deficiency in this mineral can have serious consequences. Oli6 formula contains 33% more magnesium than standard cow’s milk, which ensures your toddler gets all the magnesium needed for those vital processes.
Calcium is a mineral that keeps our bones and teeth strong. During childhood, our body starts to store calcium that is needed for the rest of our lives, so making sure your child gets access to enough calcium during childhood is more important than you think. Our Oli6 formula contains 10% more calcium than standard cow’s milk, which ensures your child can enjoy strong bones and teeth for the rest of his life.
Oli6 formulas are nutritionally complete and give your child access to all the essential vitamins and minerals. Therefore, if you have been looking for a formula that could provide all the essentials to your child, but also a formula that is a pleasant drinking experience for your little one, our Oli6 toddler formula should certainly be on your shortlist!
