Healthy Start

With Healthy Start, you can get free vouchers every week which you swap for milk, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and infant formula milk. You can also get free vitamins.

You must be at least 10 weeks pregnant or have a child under the age of 4 years.  You could qualify if you're on certain benefits or you're pregnant and under 18.  Check the website to see if you are eligible.  You can apply on-line or you can pick up a leaflet from your health visitor or from your GP's surgery.

Healthy Start Vitamins

If you are on certain benefits you can get free Healthy Start vitamins. There are vitamin drops for babies and children under 4 years old, and vitamin tablets for pregnant women and new mums. To register go to www.healthystart.nhs.uk and download an application form, or ask your midwife or health visitor to register you.
