Families can find out if they are eligible on the Healthy Start website https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/ (if they have children under 4 or are pregnant and receive qualifying benefits). Families fill in an application form which can be printed off the website and posted to Healthy Start. Once they are registered the vouchers are sent directly to them. Families can use the vouchers in registered shops https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/healthy-start-vouchers/where-to-use-the-vouchers/ and vitamins are currently being posted to families (once they are registered) by Childrens’ Centres.
