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.

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

  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. Young children 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 up to 2 servings per day depending on their individual nutritional needs. Mix 1 scoop of powder to 30 ml (approx. 1 fl. oz.) of water. Approx. 177 scoops per can. 1 scoop = 4.5 g. Approx. 29 x 200 ml 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 formulae can be poured over cereals and mixed with food.

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

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

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. SMA® ADVANCED Growing Up Milk is suitable for young children from the 12th month as part of a healthy balanced diet and it is not suitable as a breast milk substitute. The decision to start weaning or to use follow-on milk before 6 months, should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, based on baby’s individual needs.

Important advice to mothers

World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life. SMA® Nutrition fully supports this and continued breastfeeding, along with the introduction of complementary foods as advised by your healthcare professional.



Breast milk is best for babies and breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible. SMA® ADVANCED Growing Up Milk and SMA® ORGANIC Growing Up Milk are suitable for young children from the 12th month, as part of a healthy balanced diet and are not suitable as a breast milk substitute. SMA® PRO Growing Up Milk and LITTLE STEPS® Growing Up Milk are suitable for young children from 1-3 years, as part of a healthy balanced diet and are not a breast milk substitute.

If you continue you will be accepting that SMA® Nutrition is supplying this information at your individual request and for educational purposes only.
