Can I still apply for Healthy Start vouchers?
The Healthy Start scheme is continuing during the coronavirus outbreak. You will still receive your Healthy Start vouchers and you can still make a new application if you are entitled to the vouchers.
Healthy Start vouchers are for pregnant women, and parents of young children. If you meet the criteria you can get free vitamins and vouchers that can be used for milk (including first formula milk) vegetables and fruit. Eating a varied diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables helps us stay well along with helping our mood and energy levels.
