WE LOVE MUNCHKIN GRASS FED
We only want the best for our babes. Of course. And when it comes to milk drinks. We only buy the best.
When our littlest was born. We had all sorts of troubles in the boob department. And while we totally understand that breast milk is the best. It just didn’t happen for us. And we made the choice to go full bottle. Choosing a formula was tough. Overwhelming. We had no idea. Like none.
Organic. Goats Milk. Cow Milk. Expensive brand. Local brand. Overseas brand. Shiny tin. Not shiny tin. Sigh. It was all a little overwhelming. And to be honest. It was all a little trial and error. It took us a while to find the right fit for our babe.
We battled reflux. Wind. Colic. Splotchy skin. Rashes. Reactions. Mini voms. Mega voms. And the ever so delightful ass-plosions.
If only we had know what we know now. Munchkin Grass Fed. The only 100% New Zealand grass fed drink. Made from high quality milk from cows that only eat grass. We love it. And so does our littlest babe.
So. What is grass fed milk?
Basically, milk from cows that are fed only a diet of grass, plants and shrubs.
Mandy Sacher, a leading Paediatric Nutritionist and Wholesome Child founder says...
“Modern farming practices today see the feed of most dairy cows supplemented with grain, corn and soy based foods, which can expose cows to GM ingredients and impact the nutritional properties of the milk itself. When cows are fed a 100% grass fed diet, the milk not only offers a fuller richer flavour, but has been proven to combine a range of added nutritional benefits. A good way to think of it is when cows are fed a nutrient rich diet (like grass) they are healthier and will be able to produce a higher grade quality of milk.”
And what is the difference between organic and grass fed. Simply. The way the cow is fed. Mandy explains “Certified Organic Milk can come from cows that feed on certified organic grain. But grass fed milk specifies that the milk must come from cows that feed on grass, plants and shrubs exclusively”.
We have seen the benefits of Munchkin Grass Fed. Our littlest loves it. She really does. She is more settled. Sleeping better. No pesky skin irritations. No upset tummies. No ass-plosions. A happy healthier little lady.
Don’t take just our word for it. We did our research and asked the team at Munchkin to tell us a little more. Not only is Munchkin Grass Fed a great tasting premium milk based drink, but it is also higher in nutritional benefits for your little ones tummies. It has:
- Up to five times the amount of CLA*
- An ideal balance of fatty acids, vitamins, nutrients and protein, without the addition of hormones like rBGH**
- Higher levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin E and beta-carotene
- And for even more added benefits, Munchkin Grass Fed also contains Lutein and Omega 3 fatty acids ARA and DHA (hexane free) to help support brain development and eye sight.
- Munchkin Grass Fed is GMO free. rBGH** free. And grain free. Packed with vitamins A, E, CLA, and beta-carotene and all the essential fatty acids.
Even better. Munchkin cows are happy healthy cows. They roam green pastures freely everyday and are milked once or twice a day. Which makes us happy too.
Although she is one. She isn’t a fan of real cows milk. It doesn’t sit well with her. No go. So for now. We are happy to have her drinking the good stuff. Knowing she is getting all the goodness she needs. And a little more. Plus. Munchkins Grass Fed has your babes covered up to the age of three. Phew.
How you choose to feed you babe is your choice.
And we understand breast is best.
But it’s not for everyone.
For whatever reason.
So for us.
This is our choice.

* CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. It is also a popular dietary supplement that is sold with claims of helping people lose fat, maintain weight loss, retain lean muscle mass, and control type 2 diabetes. The type of diabetes that is often associated with obesity.
** rBGH is a genetically engineered artificial hormone injected into dairy cows to make them produce more milk. Despite opposition from scientists, farmers and consumers, the US currently allows dairy cows to be injected with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), also known as recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST).
