FREE Vouchers

With Healthy Start, you get free vouchers every week to spend on milk, plain fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables, and infant formula milk. You can also get free vitamins.

You could qualify for the vouchers if:

A) You’re on benefits and are at least 10 weeks pregnant.

B) You’re on benefits and have a child under 4 years old.

C) You are not on benefits but you’re under 18 and pregnant.

If you are pregnant or have a child under four years old you could get Healthy Start vouchers to help buy some basic foods. This important means-tested scheme provides vouchers to spend with local retailers. Pregnant women and children over one and under four years old can get one £3.10 voucher per week (increasing to £4.25 from April 2021). Children under one year old can get two £3.10 vouchers (£6.20) per week (increasing to £8.50 from April 2021).

The vouchers can be spent on:

  • Plain cow’s milk – whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed. It can be pasteurised, sterilised, long life or UHT
  • Fresh, frozen and tinned fruit and vegetables including loose, pre-packed, whole, sliced, chopped or mixed fruit or vegetables, fruit in fruit juice, or fruit or vegetables in water, but not those to which fat, salt, sugar or flavouring have been added
  • Fresh, dried and tinned pulses, including but not limited to lentils, beans, peas and chickpeas but not those to which fat, salt, sugar or flavouring have been added
  • Infant formula milk that says it can be used from birth and is based on cow’s milk.
  • Women and children getting Healthy Start food vouchers also get vitamin coupons to swap for free Healthy Start vitamins. Healthy Start vitamins are specifically designed for pregnant and breastfeeding women and growing children.

Claim your free fruit, vegetables and milk at these retailers and many more in Luton.
