It’s so frustrating not being able to use Healthy Start vouchers online.

I’ve not used any since the start of lockdown and they have been going to waste. It’s not felt safe to take 2 children shopping, and it works out cheaper and safer for us to shop online. I don’t see why they can’t be made to work online. Or are poor folks expected to risk more to feed their family.

Don’t get me started on the fact you can only use them for cows milk. My 2 year old has a cows milk allergy, and oat milk is much more expensive, but it isn’t covered by the vouchers.
