“My name is Verity and I am 9 years old”

My name is Verity and I am 9 years old. When I was a baby after my Mum stopped breast feeding me and started giving me cows’ milk I used to vomit, often in the middle of the night. Then because my uncle couldn’t drink cows’ milk when he was a child, my grandparents persuaded my parents to try me on goats’ milk instead. The sickness stopped straight away and I have been drinking goats’ milk ever since. In fact everyone drinks it and we have goats’ cheese, butter and yogurt.

P.S. Grandma says it is so much better and easier getting goat products now compared to when my uncle was a boy 30 years ago!
