If you’re pregnant or have a child under 4, the Healthy Start scheme can help you buy basic foods like milk, fruit and vegetables. If you qualify for the scheme you’ll be sent vouchers you can use in over 30,000 shops in the UK (see resources below for Barton and Leys maps).
You can also get coupons to swap for free vitamins suitable for:
- pregnant women
- breastfeeding women
- children aged 6 months to 5 years old
To apply for Healthy Start Vouchers, visit the Healthy Start website. Please note, the Healthy Start Voucher application form can now only be downloaded from the website. You can contact your local library to enquire about printing and scanning facilites. If you don’t have access to a scanner you can also use your phone to take a photo and send that back instead.
