Gentle Sheep Premium Sheep Milk Toddler Formula is specially formulated by experts for 1-3 year olds whose regular diet may benefit from supplementation.
Enhanced with high quality essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that support optimal growth and development, it is ideal for all growing, active toddlers, especially those with sensitivities to milk.
Our formula is made with premium grass-fed New Zealand sheep milk which does not contain the A1 protein found in most cow’s milk. The A1 protein has been associated with discomfort in some people.
NOT SUITABLE FOR INFANTS BELOW TWELVE (12) MONTHS OF AGE. BREAST MILK IS THE BEST FOOD FOR INFANTS. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT THE ONLY FOOD FOR CHILDREN.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
In preparation for and during breastfeeding, it's important that mums eat a healthy, balanced diet. If you're considering bottle feeding, always seek professional medical advice first. Introducing bottle feeding either partially or exclusively, may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and it may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
When using infant formula, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully, as unnecessary or improper use may affect the health of your baby.
By viewing this site and information about Spring Sheep™ New Zealand Gentle Sheep Toddler Formula you are accepting that you have read and understood the above information and that Spring Sheep Milk Co. is supplying this information at your individual request for information purposes.
High Calcium formula for strong bones and teeth.
Sheep’s milk is an A2-type milk, free from A1 beta-casein found in cow’s milk, which means it may be easier for your child to digest than cow’s milk and it may reduce milk intolerance symptoms.
Contains DHA & ARA (Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids), GOS/FOS prebiotic fibre and Beta-Palmitin (OPO).
Packed with 24 essential vitamins and minerals including Iron, Zinc, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C to help support growth and development.
A delicious, creamy, clean and pleasant flavour, it is a taste kids love
