Milk Tokens


I have no idea to claim these. I didn't with my son. But now my partner is commission based work, we're entitled to more.

How do I go about claiming these please? Every little helps.

No idea! Thought they went out with the Tories decades ago along with milk in school, but then in Scotland it's probably way better than in England now! lol

If you mean the healthy start vouchers for milk or fresh fruit and veg.. My midwife gave me a form and signed it. Ask your midwife or doctor. Sorry if this isnt even what your on about!!

Yeah they are the healthy start/milk tokens, they will be sent to you if you claim certain benefits.
Asking the Midwife is the best option she will point you in the right direction to get the forms you need to fill in

no you have to be on a low wage for milk tokens/ heathy eating tokens. and you only get them until the baby is 1 year old.

I got them while i was on Income support when i was on my own back in 2003 but i am not entitled for this baby as my OH is working and earns too much

You have to be on a low income or Unemplyed to recieve theese.
My partner is allso on Comission and we are intitled to theese , While pregnant you are intitled to a low set of Sure start Healthy tokens , Your midwife can stamp a form if you ask her for one .
Then once Baby is Born the amount on the tokens goes up (So to afford formula) You phone The number for the healthy start the number is on your tokens , They will note baby is born check with the family tax credits and the new ones of higher rate will start .
Hope this helps . xx .
