Healthy Start Scheme

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. For further information please visit the Healthy Start website.

If you’re eligible for the Healthy Start Scheme you can also get important vitamins for free. These come as NHS Healthy Start tablets for adults and drops for children. For further information, including how to request your vitamins, please visit the ‘Getting vitamins’ area of the Healthy Start website.
