Goat's milk can sometimes even be used as a replacement for cow's milk for children who have difficulties with dairy products. Unfortunately, goat's milk is lacking in several nutrients that are necessary for growing infants, so parents interested in trying goat's milk instead of a cow's milk - based formula for their infants should ask their pediatrician or other qualified health care practitioners for recipes and ways of adding these important and vital nutrients. For older children and adults, however, goat's milk can be an excellent calcium-rich alternative to cow's milk, for in addition to calcium, it contains many of the same nutrients found in cow's milk.
