How to prepare

In a Bottlefeed - Prepare the infant milk to the manufacturer's guidelines. Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide below. Shake well (for 30-60 secs). Leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken. Shake again and feed immediately. Do not heat in a microwave. Hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

It is also suitable for first weaning foods that have too liquid a consistency and for older children and adults. Add Instant Carobel as indicated in the feeding guide below. Stir well and leave for 3-4 minutes to thicken. Stir again and feed immediately, by spoon, prior to and during the feed or meal.
