4 Reasons why Goats Milk is the best Choice for your Kid

They say that "If she's not your MOM, it's not your milk." But this is only true for babies and kids less than 3 years of age. Let's accept the fact that not all Moms have enough milk to support their babies up to 3 years the least, which is the required age by professionals before giving babies or kids formula milk.

Although I was able to exclusively breastfed 2 out of my three kids for more than 4 years, I am aware that not all Moms are like me and that some of them need help from formula milk for their babies and kids to grow properly.

Growing up kids, 3 years old and up need milk as a source of calcium and protein. These essential nutrients are important for their growing bones and teeth. Milk also gives fat for energy and provides Vitamins such as Vitamin A and B which are needed by our eyes, skin and the immune system to name a few.

Cow's milk has long been touted as the go-to source for calcium and has been the main source of powdered or formula milk, but a lot of studies nowadays had proven that there is something better or maybe the best, which is goat's milk.


During the Mom and Meeh event - the launching of Dairy Goat - Goat Milk from New Zealand - I have learned a lot from the presentation that was facilitated by Dr. . It was a lengthy discussion about the advantages of goats milk versus cow's milk, which opened my eyes and mind to a lot of realizations.

1. Goat’s Milk is closer to human milk than cow’s milk

Similar to humans and unlike cows, goat’s milk is made through the Apocrine Secretion Process, where a portion of cells in the mammary glands are pinched off and discharged together with the milk. This process results in naturally occurring Bioactive Components similar to those found in human milk; this includes Nucleotides, Polyamines, and Taurine, which are important for a child’s growth and development. On the other hand, the Merocrine Secretion Process in cows does not yield these naturally occurring ingredients.

2. Goat’s milk is a great source of nutrients

The richness of milk is measured by both its taste and the nourishment it offers. Goat’s milk contains a wealth of essential nutrients. Every yummy drop contains a healthy dose of protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals which your children need. In fact, goat’s milk provides 33% of your recommended daily intake of calcium. It’s also rich in magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, zinc, and selenium.

3. Goat’s Milk is easier to digest

Milk we ingest forms curd in our stomach, and the curd formed by Goat’s milk is softer than regular cow’s milk, which greatly assists digestion.

Furthermore, Goat’s milk has higher digestibility and better nutrient absorption, with goat milk fat containing more medium-chain triglycerides, which are rapidly absorbed. Its ability to enhance gut barrier function may even help you keep your gut healthy.

4. Goat’s Milk has a lower allergenic burden than cow’s milk

Did you know that cow’s milk is the most common food allergy among young children? An estimated 2.5 percent of all children under three years old are allergic to cow’s milk, a problem that may continue into adulthood. Cow’s milk’s 20 different allergens may cause reactions such as inflammation and hives.

Fortunately, goat’s milk contains significantly less alpha S1 casein and beta-lactoglobulin than cow’s milk, thus offering a healthy protein alternative.

These facts are backed up by studies conducted by professionals, including pediatricians who specialize in the field.

Also, being a brand that came from New Zeland - the country known for having the largest agricultural industry - we can be sure of the quality of DG Goat Milk Beverage for Kids, the country's first and only premium powdered goat's milk for children.

Actually, I don't have any problem giving my kids any type of milk since they have no allergies on food, they don't have problems with digestion and they are not picky when it comes to milk taste. When they all turned 3 years old, they were all drinking full cream milk which is a lot cheaper than formula milk that is recommended for their age. But for parents who would always want to give the best for their children, price is the last consideration. Our top priority is nutrition and the safety of the food that our kids are going to intake.

I have always believed that we are what we eat, which is why I am very careful of what I give my family especially nowadays that a lot of products can be deceiving if we are not going to be keen and inspect thoroughly what they are all about.

Licking ice cream made of DG, tastes milky good

Having discovered Dairy Goat, I know I have to switch as I want my kids to be as healthy as possible because the diseases that are hounding humans nowadays are really strong and troublesome. Giving my kids the right milk with the right nutrients and came from a better source, can somehow give me an assurance that I am able to give my kids the right amount of nutrition they need in their daily living, and it also makes milk time one less of a worry to a busy Mom like me.
