Nutrition

  • Is goat milk-based formula nutritionally equivalent to cow’s milk formula?

    Nannycare goat milk infant formula is just as safe and suitable for your baby as cow’s milk formula and can be used in the same way as cow’s milk formula*

    *Goat milk based formula should not be given to infants with a cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) unless under the direction of a suitably qualified healthcare professional.

  • Is Nannycare safe for my baby?

    Since 2014, goat milk infant and follow on formulas are regulated, safe and approved under UK and EU regulations* This followed a clinical trial with the Nannycare formula.

    *Directive 2006/141 (EC) and equivalent UK legislation

  • Does goat milk formula have a different taste?

    Our formula milks are based on creamy whole goat milk without the aroma often associated with goat milk; each batch is sensory tested before it is approved for release to ensure it tastes great.
  • Why do you use a simple process with minimal added ingredients?

    Our formulas are made from natural, whole goat milk, minimally heat treated and with only the addition of important, vital ingredients and no additional whey. Goat milk formulas have been shown to have sufficient quantities of all essential and semi-essential amino acids, without adding extra whey proteins*

  • Why do you use whole goat milk as a base for your formula?

    By using whole goat milk which includes the natural goat milk fat, we can ensure our formulas are simply made without any need to add extra whey. We reduce the need for the addition of synthetic vegetable oils to make up the required fatty acid profile required by legislation. By using the whole goat milk, we can ensure our formulas are made by a simple method requiring fewer processing steps than whey adjusted formulas.
  • Is goat milk formula suitable for babies with cow’s milk protein allergy or cow's milk intolerance?

    Goat milk based formula should not be given to infants with a cow’s milk protein allergy unless under the direction of a suitably qualified healthcare professional. If your baby has a minor feeding issue, it may be worth trying goat milk formula as an alternative but always consult your healthcare professional before switching.

Why Nannycare?

  • Why should I choose Nannycare for my baby?

    If you want to complement breast feeding, or are ready to move on from breast feeding, you can use Nannycare in the same way as you would a cow’s milk formula. Nannycare provides parents with a genuine choice so they have the option of choosing either cow’s or goat milk formula for their babies.
