How Does it Work

Your customers can use the vouchers in full or part payment for Healthy Start foods.

Customers might use more than one voucher at a time. You can accept them as long as all the vouchers they want to use are within their use-by date.


You must be registered for Healthy Start to accept vouchers and get paid for them.

To register you need to complete and sign an Application Form, then return it to us at the Healthy Start Reimbursement Unit (HSRU).

Once you are accepted for the scheme and become a Healthy Start food outlet, you will be able to accept vouchers and send them to us to get your payment.

You will be paid the full face value of each voucher that we receive. We will pay you by BACS transfer, directly into your account, normally within 14 days of receiving your claim.
