LittleOak’s Natural Goat Toddler Milk has reached our shores. We’ve heard great things about it from parents in Australia and New Zealand. So our HoneyKids mum gave it a try, and here’s what she thinks…
Some of you may have heard of the hype around LittleOak’s Natural Goat Toddler Milk. It’s said to be a staple among parents in Australia and New Zealand, with somewhat of a cult following.
Now that LittleOak is available in Singapore, we decided to check it out and see what it is that makes this range of goat milk products so popular. Our HoneyKids mum Mas and her two daughters – six year-old Arissa and four year-old Aniqa – recently tried out LittleOak’s Toddler Milk, read on for their review!
Goat milk has always been a preferred choice for this HoneyKids mum
Mas chose to go with a goat milk formula when she had to start supplementing her daughters’ feedings. “I’ve read that goat milk is easier to digest, that it’s better for the little one’s digestive system and bowel movement,” she explained.
This is true as goat milk contains lower levels of lactose than cow milk. It also naturally contains the A2 protein. Both the low lactose level and A2 protein are known to be gentle on children’s tummies.
First impression of LittleOak Natural Goat Toddler Milk
Despite not having tried it before, LittleOak is no stranger to Mas. She told us, “I’ve read reviews about it. People have mentioned that LittleOak helps with kids’ tummy issues. This was what caught my attention as I’m very concerned about issues like gas, reflux, and constipation for my daughters.”
Mas also noticed that LittleOak uses whole milk, unlike other goat milk brands in the market. Aware of how nutrient-rich it is, she’s very keen on letting her girls try out LittleOak’s toddler milk. “Whole milk is such a good source of protein and nutrients! It’s exactly what the little ones need for proper growth, as it helps with better vitamin absorption and brain development,” she chimed.
On top of sourcing goat milk directly from its New Zealand farms, it’s also worth noting that LittleOak’s milk is only heated once. This is half the conventional heating process that goes into making other brands. The reason for this? Halving the heating process allows LittleOak’s milk to preserve the natural goodness found in goat milk, which may otherwise be reduced in the conventional process. It’s like the cold-pressed juice of formula!
Now, on to the taste test!
The trio were off to a great start as LittleOak was easy to prepare. The girls took turns to prepare their own cups, which they found mixed perfectly without clumping or foaming. The consistency was smooth as well – a big green flag. Excited (and probably thirsty), the girls happily took their first sip.
So how did it taste? We thought it’s best you hear from Arissa and Aniqa directly, through this unadulterated transcript:
Q: Is the milk tasty?
A: Yes, it’s tasty.
Q: Can you tell me how it tastes?
A: Delicious. Creamy.
Q: Do you like it?
Q: Why? What do you like about it?
A: It has nice flavour and texture [sic].
Both cups were promptly emptied. As the saying goes, action speaks louder than words; and you probably don’t need too many words to describe something that tastes great.
Verdict: Is LittleOak Natural Goat Toddler Milk worth the hype?
Needless to say, LittleOak passed the girls’ taste test. For Mas, taste is just the cherry on top of a toddler milk drink that’s filled with natural goodness and gentle on little tummies. “I focus a lot on the outcome of the milk drinks that my daughters consume. I want one that reduces gas, reflux, and constipation issues. LittleOak does that. What’s more, it’s made from all-natural fresh whole goat milk that’s free from palm oil, canola oil and GMO. I would recommend it to all parents, especially those with little ones who face difficulty with or are simply looking for an alternative to cow milk products,” she said.
More about The LittleOak Company
What sets LittleOak’s goat milk range apart from others is its world-first From Fresh process. The brand preserves a higher amount of the whole goat milk’s natural nutrients by only heating it once.
On top of that, it’s the first toddler milk in the world that’s 100% certified palm oil-free. The fatty acids in the product (essential for children’s development) are sourced from high quality cold-pressed coconut and flaxseed oils too.
To top it all up, LittleOak uses only whole milk instead of skim milk. This means your little one is getting a whole lot of natural milk fat, which is not just delicious but rich in nutrients too.
