HEALTH chiefs are handing out free vitamins to pregnant women and new mums to encourage a healthy start to the new year.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding, have a child under four and are claiming benefits, you could get free vouchers to spend on milk, fruit and vegetables and vitamins.

The vouchers can be worth from £3.10 a week upwards depending on the number of children you have and whether you are pregnant.

Free vitamins are widely available in health centres and children’s centres across Herts.

You can also find out where to get vouchers and vitamins by asking your health visitor, midwife or family doctor for more information.
