What is Healthy Start?

If you are Pregnant or have children under the age of four you could qualify for the Healthy Start scheme if you’re on benefits, or if you’re pregnant and under 18.

With Healthy Start, you get free vouchers every week to spend on milk, plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables. You can also get free vitamins.

Vitamins are recommended for all pregnant women and children from 6 months until 5 years (for children who are having 500ml or more of formula a day these vitamins are not needed). If you are not eligible for the scheme you can purchase the healthy start vitamins.
