Who is Kabrita Toddler Formula for?
If I decide to wean before 12 months, can I use Kabrita?

What are some of the benefits of using Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula?
Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula is naturally easy to digest and fortified with vitamins and minerals growing toddlers need. Due to the smaller and softer curds formed in the tummy, goat milk protein may result in less digestive discomfort than cow milk protein and may be well tolerated by children with cow milk sensitivity.
Can I give Kabrita to my child with a confirmed cow milk protein allergy?
No. Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula may be appropriate for children with cow milk sensitivity but should not be used by children with a confirmed cow milk protein allergy. Cow milk protein allergy affects 2-3% of children under 6. These children should avoid goat milk because goat milk protein may also provoke an allergic reaction. We encourage parents to work with a healthcare provider in order to determine whether their child’s symptoms stem from an allergy or sensitivity.
Are Kabrita products suitable for children with lactose intolerance?
Children with diagnosed lactose intolerance should not consume Kabrita products. All milk, including human milk and goat milk, contains lactose as the main carbohydrate source and lactose is molecularly identical in all milk. Many children do experience digestive discomfort related to cow milk consumption, however, lactose intolerance in infants and toddlers is uncommon.

Kabrita formula is not organic. Our formula is Non-GMO according to European standards and is is produced in the Netherlands where strict regulations already limit the use of antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides, and govern animal welfare. You can learn more about our farms

Why do you add soy to Kabrita Toddler formula?
Kabrita Goat Milk Toddler Formula contains no-GMO soybean oil as part of its plant-based fat blend.
Soybean oil is not the same as a whole soybean, which is one of the more common food allergens for babies and young children and has been linked to hormone disruption. Soybean oil is free of protein, which is the component that most often causes these concerns. For more information about this ingredient, please see our blog.
How do I transition my baby to Kabrita formula?

How do I prepare Kabrita formula?
