Review: Karihome Goat Milk Growing-Up Formula (Step 3)
Posted On October 25, 2017
Karihome has always been my favourite brand of formula milk which I give to my kids. In fact, my eldest daughter is now getting more nutrients from Karihome Pre-school Formula. I started to give them the goodness of Goat Milk when I was still pregnant because I was informed that goat milk is able to prevent ‘severe’ jaundice among newborns. I would drink a glass of warm goat milk twice a day because goat milk is also good for the skin, and aid my digestion system. Frankly speaking, both of my kids were born with mild jaundice. So, today’s post is about Karihome Goat Milk Growing-Up Formula Milk which is specifically made for 1-3 years old kids which I usually give to my younger kid.
What They Say
Karihome’s growing up milk is formulated to meet the nutritional needs of children from 1 to 3 years. It is specially formulated to enhance the natural goodness of goat milk to better meet the nutritional needs of growing toddlers and young children.
NCFM® is one of the 3 probiotics (types of “good” bacteria) added to Karihome Growing Up Formula. These bacteria aid in digestion and help to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Marine fish oil & single cell oil extract are added to enhance DHA & AA for brain and eye development.

Karihome Goat Milk Products are a fantastic quality approach to dairy for those allergic to or having troubles with cow’s milk.
Goat’s milk is not only easier on the digestive system in children but in adults as well so you can enjoy the benefits with your children. Karihome provides milk formulas for children from 6 months old to 3 years old and adults. There is a specific formula for each different age group to ensure that your children’s nutritional needs are met.
Is goat milk suitable for people with lactose intolerance? Often there is confusion about lactose intolerance and it can be incorrectly diagnosed. Sometimes, people who believe they are lactose intolerant find goat milk an agreeable product. All milk from mammalian species (cows, goats, sheep, humans) contains lactose, which is the major carbohydrate in the milk of most species. However, sometimes cow milk protein intolerance (CMPI) is misdiagnosed as lactose intolerance. In cases of CMPI, goat milk can be an effective alternative, especially for infants and children.
What I Say
Karihome Goat Milk Growing-Up Formula is formulated for kids aged 1-3 years old. It comes in a 900 grams tin with double lids. The product packaging has a complete information about the product and instruction on preparation. It also has a nice smell, and no ‘goat-awful-smell’. The texture of the formula milk is so soft which it dissolved easily when added with warm water. No lumps at all. I just love this because it makes my job easier – just scoop out the formula milk, add warm water, and stir or shake. Done in less than a minute.
Why I choose to give my kids with Karihome Goat Milk? Goat milk has a high level of good nutrients such as Nucletiodes, Sialic Acid, and Taurine which are crucial for my kids’ health and well-being. The high content of Casein Phosphopeptides (CPP) in goat milk increase the solubility and minerals absorption by the body. Moreover, goat milk has been proven to have lower chance of getting allergy reaction among children who consume goat milk compared to those who consume cow milk. This is because goat milk forms softer curds which can be easily digested than dense cow milk curd. In fact, goat milk can prevent the loss of the gastrointestinal tract barrier function to help reduce the risk of getting gastrointestinal problems such as vomiting, diarrhoea, and tummy upset.
My daughter does not experience allergies such as rashes, difficulty of breathing, wheezing, bloated, or diarrhoea. She loves the taste and finished up every time we prepared this formula milk for her. I also love this formula milk, not because I’m aware of the goodness of Goat milk, but because Karihome Goat Milk does not contain preservatives, and colouring. It’s safe to be taken by kids, and I can now be rest assured with what I give to my kids.
The only concern that I have is the price. However, after considering the pros and cons, I think this formula milk still an excellent growing-up formula milk which every mom should try to give to their kids because it helps to relieve constipation, and other problems such as eczema. Since it really does more good than harm, I have decided to continue giving my kids with Karihome Goat Milk.
My Final Verdict
Since I’m not the one who is taking this formula milk, so I’m going to share what my 2 years old kid think about this goat milk. My younger one is quite fussy when it comes to milk, but luckily, she loves this formula milk and she usually finished it every time I prepare milk for her. She does not experience any problems with her digestions. No vomiting, too. As her mother, the only concern is on the price because it’s quite pricey for a 900 grams. However, after giving much considerations and weighing the pros and cons, I realized that this formula milk is a good alternative to give my kids with good nutrition for their healthy development. Frankly speaking, I find this formula milk is great for my kids, and I don’t mind spending a bit because my kids’ health is on top of my priority. It’s better to spend on providing them with healthy nutrition than letting them fall sick and weak. Repurchase? Definitely, yes. Recommend it to others? Oh, yes! Because my kids love the taste so much. Me? If my kids love it, then I have to follow their recommendation.
