Proper hygiene, handling and storage are important when preparing growing up milk. Whilst made under hygienic conditions, powdered growing up formulas are not sterile.

Discard any milk that has not been used within 2 hours. For hygiene reasons, we recommend you make up each drink as required.


Store unopened under normal room conditions. Once opened, replace the lid to keep the formula tightly covered and store in a cool, dry place (not the refrigerator). Use within 3 weeks of opening.

Suggested feeding guide

Toddlers’ nutritional requirements will vary, but after 12 months we recommend your child has around 400 ml milk each day to supplement their healthy balanced diet. You can also mix the prepared milk with cereal or other solid foods however, please never add any food into your toddler’s beaker. Please speak to your healthcare professional if you require more advice.

Important notice

Similac Stage 3 is only suitable for toddlers over 1 year of age. Do not allow prolonged or frequent contact of drinks with your toddler’s teeth as this increases the risk of tooth decay. Good dental hygiene is important for babies and toddlers. Please speak with your healthcare professional or dentist for advice. Always clean your child’s teeth after the last feed at night. Toddlers should be supervised at all times when eating and drinking.
