Its a great deal, heat and rep given, although unfortunately i don't qualify, despite being 8 months pregnant.
Think it may be because both myself and my partner work, and therefore dont claim benefits.

these replace milk tokens.

How does Healthy Start work?

Once accepted on the scheme, pregnant women and families will receive a set of vouchers through the post every four weeks. Each voucher is worth £2.80 and can be exchanged for any combination of milk, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and infant formula milk in registered shops.

Entitlement to vitamin supplements will be printed on the letter attached to the vouchers. Beneficiaries should bring this letter with them to claim their vitamins from the distribution points at their health trust or health board.

How many vouchers do families get?



[LIST]
[*]Pregnant women and children aged between one and four will receive one voucher per week, worth £2.80, for each child/pregnancy.
[*]Babies under one year old will receive two vouchers, worth a total of £5.60.
[*]Babies who are born before the estimated date of delivery (EDD) will receive two vouchers until one year after their EDD. Babies who are born after the EDD will receive vouchers for one year from the date of delivery.[/LIST]As well as their vouchers, beneficiaries also get lots of health advice about healthy eating, breastfeeding, infant feeding and using the vouchers.
