Leicester Market fruit and veg traders Vicki Chapple and Pasquale Garcea are now accepting Healthy Start vouchers in exchange for their fresh produce.

Healthy Start is the UK government’s food welfare scheme for pregnant women with a low income, families with young children, and pregnant teenagers. Through Healthy Start, eligible families receive free vouchers every week to spend on milk, infant formula milk, vitamins and – in the case of Leicester Market – plain fresh fruit and vegetables.

If you’re heading down to Leicester Market – just look out for the Healthy Start logo at the participating traders’ stalls.
