Healthy Start - do you qualify?

5 December 2023 (by admin)

If you’re more than 10 weeks pregnant or have a child under 4, you may be entitled to get help to buy healthy food and milk.

If you’re eligible, you’ll be sent a Healthy Start card with money on it that you can use in some UK shops. We’ll add your benefit onto this card every 4 weeks.

You can use your card to buy:

  • cow’s milk
  • fresh, frozen, and tinned fruit and vegetables
  • fresh, dried, and tinned pulses
  • infant formula milk based on cow’s milk

You can also use your card for Healthy Start vitamins to support you during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Also, vitamin-drops for babies and young children which are suitable from birth to 4 years old.

Applying for Healthy Start online can take as little as 5 minutes! Find out if you are eligible and how to apply at the link
