It is not recommended that children aged less than 12 months be fed unmodified goat milk. Neither should they be fed unmodified cow milk. Unmodified milk is not suitable for infants younger than 12 months as the high mineral and protein content may place undue stress on the infant’s kidneys. Unmodified milk also lacks an adequate amount of various nutrients to support an infant’s nutritional requirements. For this reason, DGC developed goat milk formulas which are modified to meet the nutritional needs of young children.
