Healthy Start VitaminsGiving your child the best start in life
Pregnant, breastfeeding or have a small child*?
Then Healthy Start Vitamins are important for you and your child.
Why vitamins are important
Even though most people can get all the vitamins they need by eating a healthy, balanced diet, there are certain times in your life when you may not be able to get everything you need from food alone – like when you are planning a pregnancy, when you are pregnant, when you are a new mum or if you are a small child*.
In Halton ALL pregnant women and breastfeeding mums will receive Healthy Start vitamins for FREE from their Midwife or Health Visitor.
Also in Halton ALL families will receive their first bottle of Healthy Start Vitamins FREE for their child at around 6 – 12 months old via the Health Visitor at their 9-12 month check. After that you will have to purchase them for a small charge (approx. £1.80) or they’re FREE if you’re receiving Healthy Start Vouchers.
For more information about Healthy Start Vitamins, or on how to claim Healthy Start Vouchers, please speak to your midwife, health visitor – or alternatively visit www.healthystart.nhs.uk
(*aged 6 months – 4 years)
You can now buy* your child’s Healthy Start Vitamins from any of the venues below.
If you’re getting Healthy Start Vouchers, your child’s vitamins are FREE. Just hand over your Healthy Start Voucher to collect your FREE vitamins!
