I’m so excited to share a quick and easy way to give your child healthy foods! As a mom to two little ones, I’m always trying to do a million things at once so I need simple snacks. We love pouches but I realized most store-bought kinds aren’t recyclable! We go through these like crazy and I wanted to find reusable ones so I could make my children’s own baby food. These are incredibly easy to make and you’re able to know exactly what your little ones are consuming. Right now I’m also adding a special ingredient Into Remi’s for added nutritional benefits. I use goat milk formula by Kabrita USA instead of regular milk!
We use goat milk formula by Kabrita USA for a number of reasons. I first discovered it years ago when my son was transitioning from breast milk. Royce was put on infant formula in the hospital. Unfortunately, he wasn’t latching onto my breast. He continued to drop weight, not have many wet diapers and what I was pumping wasn’t enough right away. Pumping was the next best thing to me since I couldn’t breastfeed. I pumped for a few weeks and realized I was mentally and physically drained. My life revolved around pumping and making sure I had his next bottle prepared. That’s when I decided to give formula another try. I started to feel relief, but it was only a short amount of time before Royce became fussy. His bowel movements also weren’t as frequent. This continued for months and trying a number of formulas (over 10 kinds, yikes) and even seeing a specialist. The formulas she recommended still didn’t work, or even worse, he simply refused them due to weird smells/taste. As a new mom, I felt defeated, confused, and just wanted answers. Something told me to switch pediatricians and we found an amazing family doctor who told us about two other options: donor’s milk and goat milk formula.
Royce was on donor milk until he got to the toddler age and we then tried Goat Milk Formula by Kabrita USA. It was a game-changer! Not only was he back to more consistent bowel movements but he was a happy baby again. I learned that goat’s milk has a sweet and fresh taste and smell. It’s also naturally easier to digest than cow milk because goat milk protein forms a smaller, softer, and looser curd in the tummy, leading to quick and easy digestion. Remington experienced a very similar situation while transitioning to formula so we tried goat milk formula again and she loves it!
Kabrita USA has a really awesome sample offer so you can try out some of their other products! Remington absolutely loves these goat cheese snack puffs that came inside. The sample offer is something I love because if you’re a parent who is trying to find products that aren’t upsetting your little one’s tummy, you don’t want to waste money on something that may not work. There are also a few coupons inside that I can’t wait to use too; I truly think Kabrita USA cares about parents and their children and this offer shows it!
All in all, goat milk has tremendously helped my family. It offers a great solution to traditional milk options that causes tummy troubles for my children. It’s helped me become more aware of the struggles mothers go through with simply feeding our children and the emotions that come along too. I’m so passionate about teaching others that fed is best, no matter what plan you originally had for your children. Had I not given formula a chance, my mental health would have suffered more. Mothers need to take care of themselves in order to take care of their children, so formula was the right decision for our family and goat’s milk formula was a huge blessing.

Now onto the recipe! It’s very simple and easy. For baby food, make your consistency thicker. I usually add bananas or extra spinach for this. If you want to make a smoothie, make it thinner by adding more formula/your milk of choice than fruit. You can see how I make them in the video below!
