Healthy Start

Are you eligible for Healthy Start? Healthy Start is here to help you give your family the very best start in life.

Healthy Start prepaid card
If you are pregnant or have a child under four years old and receive income support, you could get a Healthy Start prepaid card of up to £8.50 per week to help buy food for your family.

The card can be used in any retailer that accepts Mastercard to purchase fruit, vegetables, milk, pulses and infant formula.

As part of the Healthy Start scheme in Islington, all pregnant women, mums with a baby under 1 year, women trying to get pregnant, and children under 4 years can receive free vitamins. You do not need to be receiving income support to get vitamins and the vitamins contain the recommended amount of vitamin D for mums and infants.
