Healthy Start women’s vitamin tablets contain:

  • Folic acid: reduces the chance of your baby having spina bifida, a birth defect where the spine doesn’t form properly
  • Vitamin C: helps maintain healthy tissue in the body
  • Vitamin D: helps your body to absorb calcium and so supports your baby’s bones to develop properly.

Healthy Start children’s vitamin drops contain:

  • Vitamin A: for growth, vision in dim light and healthy skin
  • Vitamin C: helps maintain healthy tissue in the body
  • Vitamin D: for strong bones and teeth.

Healthy Start vitamins are for children from six months old to four years of age or who are having less than 500ml (one pint) of infant formula a day.

Babies under six months old who are fully breastfed might benefit from them earlier – ask your midwife or health visitor for advice.
