    Default Karicare formula needs a home!

    I don't know where to put this but I have a 3/4 full tin of Karicare infant formula 1 (from birth) that I'd like to find a loving home for! It's still in date (may 2013) but I don't know where to offload it given its open.
    Is anyone interested? I'm in Cranbourne.

    Good idea! Well if no one puts their hand up I'll use it in place of milk in something.
    Thanks for the advice!

    Using it in cooking is a great idea
    Not 100% sure, but don't they say an opened tin needs to be used within a certain amount of weeks? Or am I completely off track?

    Pretty sure you should use it within 4wks of opening the seal so you best get cooking

    I'm pretty sure that's just to preserve the nutrients but if it's being used in cooking I don't see that's particularly important because the heat will alter the nutrients anyway.

    Our Karicare tin says to use within 3 weeks of opening (i think).

    We threw our leftovers out. Was glad to see the *** end of it!

    YAY! No more formula and bottle making! Woooo!
