A SCHOOLGIRL from Suffolk has been chosen to front a national campaign highlighting the health benefits of goats' milk.
Eight-year-old Gabrielle Deora, from Drinkstone Green, near Stowmarket, will feature in the 2007 publicity drive Thank Goodness for Goats, launched by Yorkshire-based St Helen's Farm, the UK's leading supplier of goats milk.
The campaign's launch coincides with Food Intolerance Week, which runs from January 22 until 27, and aims to raise awareness of the growing number of people suffering from food sensitivity.
Gabrielle has enjoyed goat's milk since she was a baby.

Gabrielle's mother Sandra said: “My husband always recommends goats' milk to patients and so we tried it with Gabrielle.
“The change in her was amazing, her health is much better. She's been on it since she was a baby and still drinks it now, seven years later, knowing it keeps her fit and healthy.”
Food intolerance and food allergies are a growing concern, with an estimated 20 to 30% of UK adults and children now claiming to suffer from food sensitivity.
The most common childhood food allergy is intolerance to cows' milk, contributing to conditions such as eczema and asthma. Drinking goats' milk is believed to help.
In addition to fronting the publicity campaign, Gabrielle will feature on the St. Helen's Farm website and her story may be told on cartons of goats' milk sold in supermarkets throughout the country.
