The NHS Healthy start scheme provides parents or carers of young children on a low-income, or those who are pregnant, to help towards the cost of healthy food.

If you are pregnant or have parental responsibility for at least one child under the age of 4 and receive a qualifying benefit, you could receive up to £4.25 a week (or over £220 a year) towards the cost of fruit, vegetables, milk and vitamins.
Your healthy Start prepaid card is discreet and can be used in any shop that sells eligible items and takes Mastercard. Payment gets automatically topped up every 4 weeks and you can check your balance at any cash machine.
