Recent data demonstrates that, although there is still more work to be done, the uptake of Healthy Start vouchers in Essex is on the increase. Perhaps more than ever, with increases in fuel and other living costs, it is even more important that we promote the offer of the Healthy Start Vouchers to ensure eligible families are aware of and access these.
What is Healthy Start?
If you’re more than 10 weeks pregnant or have a child under 4, you may be entitled to get help to buy healthy food and milk.
If you’re eligible, you’ll be sent a Healthy Start card with money on it that you can use in some UK shops. Your benefit will be added onto this card every 4 weeks.

It includes a useful “online toolkit” with promotional materials – which can be found in the “Health Care Professionals” section of the website.
