Healthy Start Vitamins

Healthy Start Vitamins and the Vitamin D Sunshine Card

Healthy Start vitamins can be accessed by pregnant & breast feeding women and families with children under 4 years of age who are on Income Support. All pregnant women under the age of 18 also qualify whether or not they are on benefits. These recipients receive vouchers which can then be exchanged for the Healthy Start vitamins free of charge.   NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde are also supporting the distribution of these vitamins to pregnant & breast feeding women and children 6 months to 4 years of age who are either obese, dark skinned or financially challenged. People who fall into these categories will be identified by their Health Visitor and will receive Vitamin D Sunshine cards that work in the same way as the Healthy Start vouchers.   These vouchers and cards can be exchanged at most Pharmacies and the Healthy Start vitamins are also available to be purchased from the same Pharmacies.
