the kendamil difference
The What? Kendamil is British owned and British Made
The Why? Whereas all other standard baby formula you'll find in supermarkets is imported, Kendamil is uniquely made in the British Lake District and sources all of its milk from Red Tractor accredited farms across the UK. We even take our name from our home town in the Lake District, Kendal.
The What? Kendamil uniquely uses Whole Milk as a source of fat
The Why? By including Whole Milk as our primary ingredient and a source of fat in our formula, Kendamil has a naturally creamy taste and reduced levels of vegetable oils, which form 100% of the fat content in other formula. It also means Kendamil includes naturally occuring MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane).
The What? Kendamil has NEVER used Palm Oil
The Why? Because of the scientific research linking Palm Oil to the malabsorption of minerals in the gut as well as the negative impacts on the environment, we have NEVER used it in Kendamil (and we have petitioned the UK government to ban it in all formula!)
The What? Kendamil sources Omega 3 from plants!
The Why? By opting to source our Omega 3 (DHA) from sustainably farmed marine algae, we avoid the fish oil allergen found in most formula and also do better for the world by not contributing to overfishing!
The Why? Kendamil is uniquely Veggie friendly!
The Why? By sourcing our Omega 3 from marine algae and avoiding animal rennet in our production process, Kendamil is uniquely certified Vegetarian!

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.

Frequently asked questions
Your questions answered
Kendamil’s unique whole milk recipe provides a more naturally-derived fat source for your baby and reduces the amount of vegetable oils in our formula (we proudly use no palm oil, fish oil or soya).
Whole milk also uniquely provides your little one a natural source of Milk Fat Globule Membrane (or MFGM), as identified in human breastmilk and uniquely included in Kendamil’s full-cream recipe.
We are proud that no Kendamil products contain palm oil (or fish oil or soya for that matter).
Sadly, palm oil has been linked to devastating environmental damage, threatening our rainforest and wildlife populations. Choosing Kendamil means saying no to palm oil, for a recipe that is kinder to babies and the world they will inherit.
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.
