Parents want their children growing up happy, strong and healthy, to see their personalities shine through – from picking themselves up after falling off a bicycle to developing their own tastes in music.
The building blocks of a child's development are the little things that they are able to do while living in unprecedented times and staying indoors, and a strong immune system is vital for a happy childhood.
It is essential when building a healthy body to always maintain good personal hygiene especially regular handwashing, exercise and a nutrient-dense diet.
According to the Malaysian food pyramid, milk should be consumed daily. It is high in protein and calcium, and rich in minerals and vitamins like vitamin A, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and zinc.
Goat’s milk is a nutritiously compact source of nine essential amino acids, vitamin D, B12, magnesium, zinc and thiamine.
It is also a good source of nucleotides and sialic acid, which are the basis of a strong immune system and provide natural protection for children.
Essential to cell division, nucleotides are natural compounds of tiny building blocks that form our DNA, a messenger to coordinate the function of the immune system .
Goat’s milk is also rich in natural prebiotic – oligosaccharides (non-digestible carbohydrates) – which improves gut health and maintains a healthy immune system .
Touted as the go-to goat milk formula in Malaysia, Karihome Growing Up Step 3 powdered goat’s milk is formulated to meet the nutritional needs of children aged between one and three years.
The milk formula also contains probiotics that can further improve a child’s immune system.
The cousin to prebiotics, probiotics are good bacteria – predominantly found in the large intestine – that promotes a healthy gut and digestive system.
The good bacteria helps keep the body in check, maintains a healthy balance within the body and restores balance after being disturbed.
The brand is the only goat milk formula in Malaysia that is scientifically proven to support growth in children, with two clinical studies   using Karihome Goat Milk Formula showing steady weight gain.
The formula is created to ensure that the natural goodness of goat milk is enhanced to better meet the nutritional needs of growing toddlers and young children.
Karihome Growing Up Step 3 is formulated with complete nutrition, which also include vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and selenium which are all key nutrients to support a healthy immune system.
These vitamins and minerals work together to form a strong foundation and boost the immune system for children.
The protein in goat’s milk allows for softer curds to form that could be digested more readily – almost three times faster – than densely structured cow milk.
Furthermore, goat's milk also contains natural medium chain fatty acids, which promotes good digestion.
