Each stage is uniquely designed to meet the nutritional needs of your baby. Kendamil First Infant Milk (Stage 1) is suitable from birth to 6 months. Kendamil Follow-On Milk (Stage 2) is suitable for 6 months to 12 months. Finally, Kendamil Toddler Milk (stage 3) is suitable from 12 months. Each baby is different so make sure to look out for signs that your little one is ready to progress to the next stage. It is recommended that you slowly ease them into the transition. For most babies, it will take them about a week to fully transition to the new formula.
Kendamil formula can get frothier then others due to the their unique recipe, which uses natural whole milk in replacement of skimmed milk, bulking agents or vegetable oil. Kendamil formula is also free from palm oil, which means that they do not use anything derived from this ingredient including emulsifiers and foam inhibitors. If you'd like to reduce the frothiness, we recommend mixing the formula in place of shaking it.
Kendamil formula should be stored in a cool and dry place before and after opening. The best before date can be located on the bottom of the canister. Once opened, Kendamil milk should be used within 4 weeks.
How to prepare Kendamil Classic, Organic and Goat milk formula:
Step 1: Begin by washing your hands and sterilizing all utensils.
Step 2: Boil water and let it cool to natural body temperature before adding to a sterilized bottle.
Step 3: Using the provided scoop, add the appropriate amount of formula. Always refer to the feeding chart on the canister, but as a general rule add 1 level scoop of powder to each 30 ml of water. Remember that all babies are different so some require more or less formula than others.
Step 4: Place cap onto the bottle and shake to dissolve powder. Once fully dissolved, remove cap and add sterilized nipple.
Step 5: Test the temperature of the liquid on your hand or wrist. Once this step is complete, you are ready to feed your little one!

Choose Your Kendamil Baby Formula

Kendamil Organic Range
The Kendamil Organic Formula Range takes the company's commitment to health and wellness just another step further, extending it to the land and animals from which their ingredients are sourced. The products in the Organic Range are made exclusively with ingredients derived from Organic farms.
This means that on top of the benefit of environmental sustainability and animal welfare, there is also a higher nutritional quality accounted for by the lack of GMO's, pesticides or herbicides. All of Kendamil Organic baby formula holds the EU Organic Certification and the UK Soil Association.
Kendamil Goat Milk Formula
Kendamil Goat Milk Formula is made with only the finest, natural ingredients, including creamy whole A2 goat milk, goat whey and plant-based DHA. The Kendamil Goat Milk range is lovingly made to be as gentle as your baby.

Key Ingredients in Kendamil Formulas
British Whole Milk
Kendamil formula is made using only British whole milk from free-roam, grass-fed cows, on Red Tractor accredited farms. This whole milk is a primary source of fat in their baby formula compared to other brands on the market who bulk up infant formulas with less nutritionally dense sources of fat, like vegetable oil. Using British whole milk results in a naturally creamy tasting formula that babies love!
DHA and ARA Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Kendamil sources their Omega 3 (DHA) from sustainably farmed marine algae, as opposed to other formulas that contain DHA derived from animal sources. This means that they can avoid fish oil, which is an allergen found in many infant formulas.
Prebiotics and Probiotics
GOS (galacto-oligosaccharides) and FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) are prebiotics that are found in Kendamil formula. Kendamil Classic stages 1 and 2 contain GOS and FOS. While Kendamil Classic stage 3, Kendamil Organic and Kendamil Goat stages 1-3 contain GOS. Prebiotics are associated with many benefits such as better brain function and immunity and reduced inflammation.
Essential Vitamins and Minerals
Kendamil formulas contain many immune-boosting vitamins and minerals, like vitamin A, C, D and Zinc.
No Palm Oil
Kendamil formula has never included palm oil as an ingredient. The company has even petitioned the United Kingdom government to ban palm oil in all infant formula. This is because scientific research suggests that palm oil is not only bad for the planet, but also bad for your infants health, due to it reducing their body's ability to absorb minerals in the gut.
