The best type of formula depends on many different things, which includes the personal preferences of the child as well as the preferences of the parents. Therefore, the choice of formula is mostly down to the parents and their views. However, we can put one formula forward for your consideration – goat’s milk formula.
Goat’s milk formula is a type of formula obtained from fresh goat’s milk. Therefore, goat’s milk formula has the same benefits fresh goat’s milk has; this includes high levels of prebiotic oligosaccharides, vitamins and minerals.
Since goat’s milk formula is a popular choice for children, let us take a closer look at some of the benefits associated with prebiotic oligosaccharides, as well as the high levels of natural vitamins and minerals inside goat formula.
The prebiotic oligosaccharides inside goat formula are non-digestible fibres; this means that these compounds are not digested by the body, but that they remain in the intestines. Of course, the presence of prebiotic oligosaccharides in the intestines does have some benefits, so let us take a closer look at the functions associated with the prebiotic oligosaccharides inside goat formula.
When the prebiotic oligosaccharides from goat formula enter the intestines, they start to attract and absorb water. Then, when stool passes through the intestines, this water makes the stool softer and considerably easier to pass. Therefore, the use of goat formula could reduce symptoms such as cramping and constipation.
Non-digestible fibres such as prebiotic oligosaccharides also stimulate the growth of healthy gut bacteria, which means they stimulate digestion again. By stimulating the growth of these healthy bacteria, prebiotic oligosaccharides also limit the growth of pathogenic bacteria; this means that your child will be less susceptible to infections.
In conclusion, adding prebiotic oligosaccharides to the diet of your child can give your child several health benefits. Especially children who are susceptible to digestive distress could benefit from prebiotic oligosaccharides, considering that these non-digestible fibres make digestion easier and reduce the presence of pathogenic bacteria inside the intestines.
Even though standard cow’s milk and goat’s milk formula contains the same types of vitamins and minerals, there is a difference in the levels of certain vitamins and minerals. Compared to normal cow’s milk, fresh goat’s milk contains higher levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium, a fact that could be interesting for parents of nutrient-deficient toddlers.
During childhood, it is normal for toddlers to go through the so-called fussy eating stage. During this stage, toddlers will find it difficult to try new ingredients or solid foods in general. Even though this is a normal part of growing up, it could be worrisome for parents.
To tackle a shortage of nutrients during a certain period in your toddler’s life, you could add a goat formula to your child’s daily routine. Even though children still need a strong and balanced solid food diet, goat’s milk formula could help to supplement some of the nutrients they have been missing due to their fussy eating stage.
Naturally, parents must still handle the fussy eating stage to make sure their child develops healthy eating habits. Fortunately, there are many things you can do as a parent, which includes sharing a plate with your toddler, eating as a family, giving your toddler positive attention when trying new ingredients and more.
If your toddler shows no signs of improving their fussy eating habit after some time, it could be a good idea to take your toddler to the paediatrician. Even though fussy eating habits are a normal part of growing up, it can become a problem for your toddler’s growth and development if the fussy eating habits persist.
