Feeding guide

  ml fl. oz. (approx.)  
1 beaker 180 6 6

6 scoops of powder added to 180 ml (6 fl. oz. approx.) water makes 200 ml (7 fl. oz. approx.) milk drink. All toddlers have different nutritional needs, but after 12 months we recommend your child has around 400 ml of milk per day. You can feed your child 2 servings per day depending on their nutritional needs. Mix 1 scoop of powder to 30 ml (approx. 1 fl. oz.) of water. Approx. 173 scoops per can. 1 scoop = 4.6 g. Approx. 28 x 200ml servings per can.

 

Important feeding information

  • Do not add extra powder or water to make the drinks stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your toddler ill.

  • We recommend preparing each milk drink in individual beakers when required.

  • For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the beaker as soon as possible.

  • Made-up milk drink can be poured over cereals and mixed with food.

  • Do not alter or add to milk drink unless medically directed.

  • Do not warm feeds in microwave, hot spots may occur and cause scalding.
