Made in Britain
Kendamil is the only British made formula – wow, right? We’re lovingly crafted in the English Lake District (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and proudly source our ingredients from family farms across Cumbria, Somerset and Yorkshire.
So we can bring to your home a little slice of ours.
Farm to formula
We know our farmers and animals – Daisy, Betty, Wilbur … and the cows have names too! Every farm in our supply chain is proudly Red Tractor certified, ensuring the highest quality, ethical and traceability standards in the UK. That means the best for your baby, from farm to formula.
As pure as they are
It’s not just about what is added to formula, it’s about what isn’t. We are proud to use zero nasties – no GMOs, soya, corn syrups, glucose, maltodextrin or hexane solvents in our production. Why? Because it's the right thing to do.
Ever wonder why other formulas aren’t veggie friendly? Us too – it’s because they use fish oils for their DHA. We use a plant-based DHA source in Kendamil, protecting your baby from fish allergens and safeguarding our oceans. This is what gives Kendamil its great taste and smell!
Protecting their world
We believe in protecting the planet your baby will inherit. That means saving our rainforests (no palm oil), preserving our fish stocks (no fish oil) and reducing emissions through local suppliers, renewable energy and recyclable materials. Just like your little one, we have a tiny (carbon) footprint.

Step 1: Wash hands, then sterilise your feeding utensils according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Step 2: Boil fresh water and let cool for 10 minutes before adding powder. Do not use artificially softened or repeatedly boiled water. Measure the required water into a sterilised bottle.
Step 3: Using the scoop provided, add the correct number of levelled scoops to the bottle. Use the straight edge inside the lid to level each scoop.
Step 4: Place on a sterilised cap and shake well to dissolve powder. Remove cap and replace with a sterilised teat.
Step 5: Cool to a natural body temperature. Always test the temperature of the liquid on your wrist prior to feeding your baby.
For feeding your baby, add 1 level scoop of powder to each 30 ml of water (freshly boiled and cooled). Please refer to the feeding guide shown on the can and note this table should only be used as a guide. All babies are different and may require more or less than is shown. Kendamil First Infant Milk should be fed on demand. If you need more advice talk to your healthcare professional.

Frequently asked questions
Your questions answered
Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more natural fat source for your baby and reduces the amount of vegetable oils in our formula (we proudly use no palm oil, fish oil, soya or GMOs).
Whole milk also uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in breastmilk and shown to improve infants’ cognitive development.
We are proud that no Kendamil products contain palm oil (or fish oil, soya or GMOs for that matter).
Aside from the environmental benefits of avoiding palm oil, it’s also better for your little one. Studies suggest palm oil can have a negative impact on infants ability to absorb fats and calcium  and can make stools harder, causing constipation in some cases. Better for your baby and their planet!

The main difference between Stage 1 and Stage 2 is the whey:casein ratio, which changes from 60:40 to 40:60. This gradual change is designed to reflect the natural changes in breastmilk and helps prepare your little one for weaning. Stage 2 milk also contains higher lactose and less fat.
We’re so excited to hear you’re considering joining our growing family at Kendamil!
We recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before making any changes to your little one’s diet. It can be a good idea to slowly introduce new formula to allow for their tummy to adjust.
We do not recommend storing pre-prepared bottles of milk in the fridge, as Kendamil follow the guidelines set down by the Department of Health that feeds are made fresh on demand.
Once the powder has been added to the hot water, the feed will be suitable for use for 2 hours. We would recommend that after this time any leftover product should be discarded.
