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

You can find out if you could get Healthy Start vouchers and vitamin coupons by answering a few simple questions on the Healthy Start website.

A quarter of eligible families are missing out and the uptake is quite low in some East Lothian towns.

The Healthy Start website is easy to use and includes recipes and healthy living advice as well as an information sheet about the scheme to give to retailers that may not be aware of it.  You can also get local advice by searching #Gethealthystart on Facebook.
