Have you heard of Healthy Start?
Healthy Start is a Government initiative that provides eligible families with vouchers every week to spend on milk, fresh, frozen, and tinned fruit and vegetables, fresh, dried, and tinned pulses, and infant formula milk.
These vouchers provide additional financial assistance to support nutritional intake amongst children and families on low incomes. But the uptake of the Healthy Start scheme in Wales is in decline, meaning that a significant number of eligible families are missing out on support that they’re entitled to.
So how can families benefit from the Healthy Start vouchers? Food Sense Wales explains more.
