This will save you up to £ 200 per year.
Pregnant women and mothers with children under the age of four can apply for vouchers through the government’s Healthy Start program. They can be spent on buying milk, baby food, fresh and frozen fruits, and vitamins.
Anyone already receiving Income Support, Child Tax Credit, Jobseeker’s Allowance, Universal Credit, Pension Credit, or Working Tax Credit can count on vouchers.
Pregnant women and women with children from 1 to 4 years old are entitled to one voucher of £ 3.10 per week, for women with children under one year old – two per week.
Some supermarkets offer an additional £ 1 discount on presentation of a Healthy Start voucher. According to the government, this will save up to £ 200 a year.
From April 2021, the value of one voucher will increase to £ 4.25.
