SMA Follow-on Milk is SMA’s best complement to the weaning diet from 6 months. A follow-on milk providing the important nutrients that your growing baby needs.
- Improved Protein Balance
An improved protein quality including increased levels of alpha-protein
- Omega 3 and 6
Helps eye and brain development
- Essential Nutrients, fortified with iron
Rich in the key vitamins and minerals your baby needs to help make the transition to eating solid foods
SMA Follow-on Milk is nutritionally superior to cows’ milk. For example, it contains 40 times more iron per serving than cows’ milk. Cows’ milk should not be used as a drink until 1 year old as it contains virtually no iron.
SMA 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 of life. The decision to start weaning or to use follow-on milk before 6 months, should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, based on your baby’s specific growth and development needs.
We recommend using SMA Follow-on Milk as SMA’s best milk when your baby is starting to wean because:
SMA Follow-on Milk has an improved protein quality (containing higher levels of alpha-protein than cows’ milk).
SMA Follow-on Milk contains Omega 3 and 6 to help healthy brain and eye development. Not all Follow-on milks contain these important nutrients.
SMA Follow-on Milk contains increased levels of iron (a nutrient which is often difficult for weaning babies to obtain from their diet). Babies are born with a natural store of iron but this is used up by the age of 4-6 months and the needs to be supplied by their diet.
SMA Follow-on Milk also contains recommended levels of other important nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Calcium, Zinc, Potassium and Vitamin E.
SMA Follow-on Milk can also be used in weaning recipes.
SMA Follow-on Milk powder is suitable for both Halal and Vegetarian diets.
We recommend using SMA Follow-on Milk for feeding babies from 6 months. SMA Follow-on Milk complements the weaning diet by providing additional nutrients.
SMA has 3 different ranges - Core, Specialist and Preterm - designed to meet different babies' nutritional needs.

3. SMA Toddler Milk - nutritionally balanced for active toddlers from 1 year
When it comes to feeding a newborn, breast is best. As experts in infant nutrition, with 90 years of expertise on feeding babies, nobody understands this better than us.
At SMA we’re great advocates of breastfeeding. Through our new SMA know-how programme we’re actively supporting new mums with practical videos, helpsheets and advice to help them breastfeed with confidence
We also understand that breastfeeding doesn’t work out for everyone. Which is why we’ve spent 90 years developing infant formulas which are the best alternative to breast milk. So we can support those mums who can’t or choose not to breastfeed too. Today, more parents in the UK and the Republic of Ireland choose to use SMA products for their infants.
Supporting new parents and supplying a range of infant formulas are just part of what we do. We are also dedicated to research and development, and work closely with professional organisations to support healthcare professionals too.
