Marcus Rashford urges health staff to spread word about food vouchers
The Guardian says footballer Marcus Rashford is calling on health workers to spread the word about free food vouchers for children from low-income households after it emerged that 40% of those who are eligible have yet to sign up.
The government’s Healthy Start scheme enables parents in receipt of a welfare benefit, who have at least one child under four or who have been pregnant for 10 weeks or more, to obtain free food vouchers worth £4.25 weekly which can be exchanged for milk, infant formula, fruit, vegetables and pulses.
