Thankfully in this time and age, mothers now have many more alternatives when it comes to nourishing our children; even parents\u2019 all-time favourite go-to: milk and formula \u2013 comes in a wide variety of formulation and flavours to meet specific dietary needs.\r\nWholesome Goatness in a Cup\r\nWe have always heard about the many benefits of goat milk but for some of us, it may not be a straightforward choice because we never grew up drinking it. However, contrary to popular believes, or rather common misconceptions, it is actually scientifically proven that goat milk contains many honest-to-goodness benefits especially for growing children between ages 1 and 3 years old; and Baby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 is here to share the reasons why parents should opt for goat milk for their children.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBaby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 is a premium goat milk formula imported from the beautiful land of New Zealand. Thanks to the healthy properties found in Baby Steps BBs-3, it is also one of the leading goat milk formula brands in NZ.\r\nHere\u2019s why:\r\n\r\n \t\r\nNaturally Closer to Breast Milk\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBelieve it or not, goat milk is a good alternative to breast milk for weaning babies or mommies who are topping up with formula. This is because goat milk is proven to have a protein composition similar to that of breast milk and contains abundance of nutrients.\r\n\r\n \tHigher Level of Oligosaccharides\r\n\r\nAdditionally, oligosaccharides are a type of prebiotics that support the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. Studies have shown that goat milk naturally contains 5x to 8x more oligosaccharides than cow milk.\r\n\r\nIt is learned that these prebiotic compounds in goat milk have anti-inflammatory properties which are very important to build children\u2019s immunity and ease digestion.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nHighest Content of DHA \r\n\r\n\r\nDocosahexaenoic acid, or better known as DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid. It is important for the development of the brain and eyesight, and to keep them functioning optimally.\r\n\r\nCompared to other formula brands in the market, the content of DHA found in Baby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 is actually the highest, where a 100g of formula contains 115mg of DHA.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nEasier to Digest \r\n\r\n\r\nThe size of fat molecule found in goat milk is 1\/3 the size of cow milk, this allows for easier digestion. When milk reaches the stomach, the protein in the milk will react with our stomach acid to form curd; goat milk forms softer and looser curds than cow milk. The softer the curd, the quicker it gets digested.\r\n\r\nThat is why, Baby Steps\u00ae BBs-3\u2122 goat milk formula is perfect for children whose digestive system is still young and developing.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nHigh In Calcium \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGoat milk has a naturally high content of essential minerals and vitamins. Its high level of calcium is especially good for children\u2019s bone development and healthy growth.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \t\r\nNo Added Sugar \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAh yes, the dreaded sugar content that mothers diligently pore over food labels and wage war to eliminate it as much as possible. Unlike other children\u2019s milk formula brands available in the market, Baby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 does not contain any added sugar apart from natural lactose.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nNatural Nucleotides \r\n\r\n\r\nNucleotides play a crucial role in children\u2019s weight gain and head growth. For this very reason, cow milk formula is usually supplemented with nucleotides.\r\n\r\nThe good news is that nucleotides can be found naturally in goat milk. So, there is no need to artificially fortify the formula.\r\n\r\n \t\r\nLess Allergenic* \r\n\r\n\r\nWe learned that alpha-s1-casein is one of the allergenic proteins present in milk. Scientific studies show that even though both cow milk and goat milk contain alpha-s1-casein, goat milk however, only has an average of 4% of the allergen compared to a whopping 36% in cow milk.\r\nGrowing Healthily, One Baby Step at a Time\r\nIt is not difficult to see why in many ways, goat milk makes a quality choice for mothers who\u2019d like to supplement their children\u2019s diet.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAll the ingredients that go into a can of Baby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 are carefully selected from accredited suppliers and tested to pass the mark of safety and quality - this is so that the strict New Zealand, International and Malaysian standards are met without compromise.\r\n\r\nBaby Steps\u00ae\u00a0BBs-3\u2122 also contains no palm or soybean oil and is GMO free.
