Healthy Start

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. Your benefit will be added onto this card every 4 weeks.

You can use your card to buy:
– plain liquid 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 to collect:
– Healthy Start vitamins – these support you during pregnancy and breastfeeding
– vitamin drops for babies and young children – these are suitable from birth to 4 years old
