NHS Healthy Start – get help to buy healthy food and milk

Are you pregnant or have a child under four? Did you know you could be missing out on free fruit, vegetables, or milk worth at least £220 a year and free vitamins?


If you are more than 10 weeks pregnant or have a child under four years old, and in receipt of certain benefits, you could be entitled to a Healthy Start prepaid card worth £4.25 per child per week, to spend on healthy food and milk.


If you are entitled to Healthy Start, you will also get free vitamins designed to help pregnant and breastfeeding women and growing children.


Pregnant women and parents of children over one and under four years old can apply online for a new Healthy Start digital prepaid card which will be topped up every 4 weeks. Parents of children under one year old can get £8.50 per week. Previous voucher recipients must re-apply to continue getting help.
