Families can collect 8 weeks' supply of children's vitamin drops from any of the community venues across the county listed here Healthy Start Scheme booklet (PDF 552KB).

Families with children aged between 2-4 years will be able to continue collecting the vitamin drops from the same venues if they are in receipt of a Healthy Start card.  

Pregnant women and mothers with babies up to six months (if breastfeeding or dual feeding) are also entitled to collect free vitamins for themselves- these will initially be distributed by midwives and Health Visitors during their early visits.

To find out more about the Healthy Start card and how to apply please visit: Healthy Start website.
