Quite honestly, it doesn’t seem to be that healthy of an idea to me, either. Considering that formula is designed for the physiology of an infant, it’s probably not a great thing for an adult or older teen to consume. In any case, I’d tread lightly in areas like that and, if it tastes that horrible, you’re probably better off throwing it out.
It may be better for infants, but it’s non-harmful to anybody older. The majority of formula are all those vitamins and minerals and stuff, and for an infant it’s a big dose but for an adult, it’s probably about average. As for other ingredients that help development, if there’s a specific ingredient that’s gentle enough for an underdeveloped stomach and body, then I have no idea how it could be bad for my fully developed stomach and body.
Not really. I’ve seen a few parents in this town taste test baby formula to see if it’s safe for their child first.
It’s an easy enough story to go by, and considering the whole doctor patient confidentiality thing, now that I’m over 18 I’m pretty sure this will never be disclosed to my parents even though I’m living with them. I could be wrong, but given that kind of situation, I’d bet I could also just ask the doctor in question to not talk about it with my parents, as even if I have a legitimate story it’d be a rather awkward conversation.
In reply to your original post Jaks, I once tried Nestle’s Goodstart many years ago and it was just awful then. Evidently it hasn’t changed. I’ve used Similac for a long time, but my prefered formula now is Enfamil Lipil.
