Information for Health Professionals
We recently sent a survey to our valued community of healthcare professionals. We asked: Does Kabrita help resolve symptoms commonly present in early childhood? The responses were overwhelmingly positive!
Of the 159 health professionals surveyed, 85% agreed that older infants and toddlers who switched to Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula from another source of nutrition such as cow’s milk or other infant formula, experienced relief from symptoms of gas, bloating and discomfort. Additionally, between 60-70% of health professionals agreed that Kabrita helped resolve symptoms of constipation, diarrhea, reflux and/or excessive spit-up and minor skin issues.
Collectively, 9.3% of responses were ‘don’t know.’ This percentage reflects the average responses of 159 health professionals across all 5 common feeding symptoms of gas, excessive spit-up or reflux, loose stool or diarrhea, constipation and minor skin issues.
Digestive discomforts such as reflux, gas, stool inconsistencies and minor skin irritations are some of the most common concerns in pediatric health care1,2. These symptoms can have various underlying causes, including dietary triggers.
We believe that it is not one, but many features that help explain why health professionals are able to report symptom resolution with the use of Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula.
We are humbled by the team of dedicated health professionals who continue to spread the gentle word about Kabrita goat milk-based foods and share their valued feedback!
