Sainsbury's Healthy Start Top Up

Extra fruit and vegetables from Sainsbury’s for people with a Healthy Start card.

Sainsbury’s has announced it is once again topping up the Government funded NHS Healthy Start scheme by £2. Families in Nottinghamshire using their Healthy Start card can receive a £2 coupon for fruit and vegetables to be redeemed at any Sainsbury’s store in England. The retailer is providing a £2 coupon every week over the next six months to customers using a Healthy Start card in Sainsbury’s, running until Tuesday, 11th April, 2023.

The NHS Healthy Start scheme helps to encourage a healthy diet for pregnant women, babies and young children under four from low-income households. Customers in England who use a Healthy Start card when shopping at Sainsbury’s automatically receive a printed coupon worth £2 to use towards fresh, frozen, and tinned fruit and vegetables during their next shop.

Sainsbury’s first introduced the £2 top-up coupon in 2021, helping families during February half-term and beyond. The coupon was then reintroduced throughout the winter to provide extra help to those who may be struggling over the Christmas period.

Find out if you are eligible by visiting the Healthy Start website.
