Healthy Start can be used to buy or towards the cost of fresh, frozen or tinned fruit and vegetables, fresh, dried and tinned pulses, cow’s milk and infant formula. These food categories are set out in legislation. There are no plans to alter the legislation to prioritise British produce in these categories.
