Product FAQs



We have refreshed our packaging with a new design, but rest assured it’s still our same formula with the same ingredients and taste.

SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk is tailored for babies from 6 months as part of a varied weaning diet. At 6 months babies development progresses quickly and they start to run out of the iron stores they had from their mothers, so their iron needs increase at this stage. SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk is enriched with iron to help support normal cognitive development in baby’s brain. Inspired by our research into natures wonderful nutrients SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk also contains 2’FL – our latest breakthrough in baby nutrition.

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.

Want to know more? See our product FAQs.

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy babies Using SMA Pro milk we have happy content babies the milk seems to fill them up enough to allow them to sleep through the night. They took to the milk straight away with no complaints despite one being quite a fussy feeder. My only issue is that the milk does get quite frothy if its made with a perfect prep machine and one baby wont drink it until the froth has disappeared. not ideal when you have to hungry babies. We have now tried the Organic milk too. I didn't think they would notice any difference but wow! They seem to enjoy it even more. Definitely my go to milk brand from now on. Overall I would recommend this range of milk to other parents!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Personally, the best thing I found about this product was knowing that my 9 month old son, would get everything he needs without compromise. He's been on formula since he was a week old, due to health issues and I've found that this particular tub did him wonders, he drank this down with gusto. It's far easier to dissolve in water than other brands but doesn't seem to stick to container tubs when transporting. My only minor niggle is that the tub doesn't have a flat surface to scrape the spoon against, meaning it's slightly harder to get a perfectly level spoonful. Apart from that tiny tiny issue, this is a fantastic product for my son and I've continued to buy it since

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PACKED WITH ALL THE NEEDED VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS Im choosy regarding my kids food as I want to make sure that they are being given the best... I've always aimed to breastfeed my children however this I can't do as much as before because of my work.. Althoguh I've started feeding him with solid foods still he need.. Compared to the first powder milk I've tried, this one is easy to mix; no residues and my wee one just like it instantly. Im impressed. Also, this is not as sweet as the one I tried first which i thought is better as well. It is packed with the vitamins and nutrients I thought my wee one needs at this growing stage. I'll stick to SMA and will recommend it to my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bobby's experience It has taken a while for my son to get used this at first he was refusing it but after offering him it with his lunch he now seems to really enjoy it through the day . We haven't fully changed over yet he still has his first stage milk at bed times as he seems to sleep alot better. I am hoping to gradually change him to this one .I am loving the handy ready made cartons for when we are out the powder is easy to mix and doesn't clump up. I have also given to my friends to try and have had mixed reviews some have gone on to buy this and some have stuck to there current first stage. After also trying the organic version Bobby loves it just as much

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best follow on milk I used this on my son when he was just past 6 months at 1st I was a bit worried that there would be a noticeable difference and my child wouldn't like it, however he has made the transition really smoothly and easy it has had no effect on him and he enjoys it just as much. I love the cartons as a convinence, we keep a spare one in the car so we always have a milk if we get stuck in traffic and have no powder made up. As the past month has gone on my little boy has continued to use the sma stage 2,he is still having no problems with this it hasn't. Love how smooth the move over has been and how it has had no effect on my little boy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great milk We have been using SMA PRO 1 since my baby was born and were unsure whether or not to switch to a follow on milk, as we were advised by local healthcare professionals that this is now personal preference, rather than recommended per se. It was great to be able to trial a follow on milk to help us make our minds up. We have got on very well with the first formula, so were keen to stay with SMA. I'm not really sure I can detect any difference between the first and second milks in terms of colour, consistency etc. My baby seems to like it equally as much and we have not noticed any specific side effects to date, so we shall continue with the follow on milk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ms Dovile I would definitely recommend SMA Pro Follow On to other mums who are thinking of from breastfeeding. Easy to mix, baby seems to enjoy it I changed from another brand to Sma Pro follow-on Milk and baby seems much happier on this powdered milk formula. These small packs of milk are ideal for when we're out and about. The packaging is very easy to open, thanks to its twist lid opening, which can also be resealed. The milk can be served at room temperature or can be heated in baby's bottle. My baby seems to very much enjoy this milk and gets very eager to drink it when he sees me preparing his bottle. Definitely gonna recommended this product for other moms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic milk Until now I have always used another brand of milk powder, so was wary about changing formula. I was worried baby wouldn’t like it, or not react well to the change. My first impression was the smell, some other formulas have an unpleasant smell and SMA didn’t, so I was pleasantly surprised! Baby took the bottle quickly, he literally downed the whole bottle without batting an eyelid. He seemed happy and so was I. Following his feed, there was much less wind and sick than I normally see, so I assume this I should down to the milk formula. Overall I am really pleased with SMA Andy will Ben sticking to buying this movingly forwards.

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® PRO Follow-on Milk is only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. It should not be used as a substitute for breast milk during the first 6 months. The decision to start weaning or to use this product 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 Follow-on Milk, SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk, SMA® ORGANIC Follow-on Milk and LITTLE STEPS® Follow-on Milk are only suitable for babies over 6 months as part of a mixed diet. Not intended to replace breastfeeding.
