Healthy Start – free healthy food and vitamins

Child eating vegetables

If you have children between the ages of 0-4, you may be eligible to access money for healthy food and milk. Healthy Start has switched from paper vouchers to card that can be used in the same way as a bank card. If you used to receive Healthy Start vouchers, you’ll need to reapply.

If you’re pregnant or have a child under the age of four in Tower Hamlets, you can also collect free vitamins from a Children’s and Family Centre.

To find out if you’re eligible click here > 


Vaccination leaflet

Has your child missed any of their routine vaccinations?

Parents and guardians of children aged 1 to 11, who are not up-to-date with their vaccinations, will be offered protection for their children against polio and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) through primary schools and community venues. They can also contact their GP surgery at any time to get their children up to date with their vaccinations.

The flu vaccine is being offered at your child’s school again on 19th October and 30th November. A third date will be given if needed, depending on the numbers of responses. They will offer the Nasal Flu vaccine or the IM Flu vaccine, which is the gelatine-free option. Even if you do not wish for your child to have the vaccine, please complete the online form so that we can record your wishes.
