We started getting healthy start vouchers recently, and it’s been great - we already bought loads of fruit and veg, so we now have more money in the household budget, so I can buy grace her very expensive, no nuts, no salt, no sugar, all singing, all dancing organic muesli!
I noticed though that you can also buy formula with the vouchers, and I guess I wondered whether there’s actually an increase in the uptake of healthy fruit and veg as a result of them, or will people who don’t currently buy veggies just use them for formula, and people who already buy lots of veggies will buy the same amount and save the cash to buy other things as we have?
You can also only buy formula for babies up to 6 months - follow-on milk doesn’t count. Do you think that contravenes the laws around not promoting infant formula and not being able to give out free samples?
Just opening it up for discussion…...
