This special snap-on lid would offer several benefits to the RTU baby formula user. The lid would offer a spout for clean pouring into a baby bottle, that would snap shut and keep the formula protected in the refrigerator and some type of dial or other very simple date mechanism that indicates when the product was opened. The user knows how much time the remaining formula has left and has an easy pour spout.
