Calling all parents! Did you know that if you are pregnant or have a child under four, and are on a low income, you are eligible for free prepaid Healthy Start food and milk vouchers?
If you do not sign up online, you will stop receiving healthy start vouchers in March 2022.
What is the Healthy Start Scheme?
The Healthy Start digital scheme gives families access to free vouchers for food, plain cow milk, infant formula. The vouchers come as a prepaid card to be used for purchasing healthy food and milk, to replace the paper vouchers. Beneficiaries of the scheme can also use their prepaid card to prove their entitlement, to collect free Healthy Start vitamins.
How do you apply for the scheme?
If you are still receiving paper vouchers you need to reapply for a prepaid digital card now or your vouchers will stop in March.
To reapply or to see if you are eligible for Healthy Start support visit the NHS website today here.
If you need support with accessing the Healthy Start Vouchers, please speak to your Health Visitor, local Children and Family centre, or Idea store.
