Recyclable Tin, Lid & Scoop

We know that today’s babies don’t just rely on their parents to look after them now, but they also need all of us to help look after the world they will inherit from us. That’s why we use forever recyclable steel tins. Making it super easy for you to do your bit…. even when sleep deprived.

And now at least 66% of plastic in the lid and 95% of the plastic in the scoop is produced from sugar cane, which is a renewable plant-based resource. Our tins, lids and scoops are still all widely recycled – so simply throw in the recycling bin.

Want to know more? See our product FAQs.

The plastic lids and scoops are widely recyclable within the UK and Ireland, but check with your local recycling facility.

Important feeding information

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

  • We recommend preparing each feed in individual bottles when required.

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

  • For older babies, made-up formulae can be added to food.

  • Do not alter or add to formulae unless medically directed.

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

  • Remember, cows’ milk should not be used as a drink during the first year.

Important notice

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies and we fully support the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age. We also recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for parents. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional about how to feed your baby and seek advice on when to introduce complementary feeding. If you choose not to breastfeed, please remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse and has social and financial implications. Introducing partial bottle-feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. Infant formula should always be prepared, used and stored as instructed on the label in order to avoid risks to a baby’s health.
