  • Yes. I compared the backs and they are the same thing with tiny little difference (very tiny). We used mostly store brand with our 3rd child and all store brand with our last. They were any different then the kids we used name brand with.

  • Yes I think they're the same. I have looked into it before she changed formula but normally like Targets brand has on the can the difference of brand named formula with the target brand.

  • My healthy one year old will tell you yes, they are the same. We used either Target, Kroger or Meijer brands, they are literally the same thing with different stickers put on the can. She never had a problem switching between whatever one was on sale :)
