Healthy Start scheme
The Healthy Start scheme is continuing to run during the COVID -19 outbreak.
Eligible applicants can get free vouchers every week to spend on milk, plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables, and infant formula milk. These can be redeemed at retail outlets registered with the Healthy Start scheme which includes many independent local shops and pharmacies.
New legislation has been passed so applicants do not need a midwife or health visitor to sign the Healthy Start vouchers application form.
