A schoolgirl is on a high after being chosen to be the face of one million milk cartons.
Seven-year-old Georgina Duffety has been unveiled as the latest St Helen’s Farm carton star after she wrote to the Yorkshire-based dairy to say how much she enjoys drinking its goats’ milk.
Georgina, who lives with her family in Wicken and is a pupil at The Weatheralls Primary School in Soham, has been drinking St Helen’s Farm goats’ milk since she was just 18-months-old after her mum decided to switch from cows’ milk to see if it improved the symptoms of eczema.
Her mum, Tamsind, said: “We did try other milks, including soya and almond, but Georgina didn’t like the taste.
“Even after a few days of cows’ milk, the eczema had reappeared and so I have since told other friends with children who have similar skin conditions – it’s amazing.”
Mild-tasting goats’ milk can be a good alternative for people who can’t drink cows’ milk – which is one of the most common causes of intolerance (especially amongst young children) in the UK.
Many people who can’t drink cows’ milk can drink goats’ milk – and claim their intolerance symptoms are reduced or disappear altogether.
These symptoms often include eczema, asthma, bloatedness, constipation, digestive discomfort and catarrh.
St Helen’s Farm’s sales and marketing manager, Mike Hind, said: “We receive lots of stories from people who have switched to goats’ milk and have found that the symptoms of a number of health conditions have improved.
“Georgina’s love of our goats’ milk is obvious and it is fantastic she has enjoyed benefits from switching, so this is our way of saying thank you for helping to spread the word.”
