This document responds to a consultation which asked whether Healthy Start beneficiaries should be able to choose to spend their vouchers on plain frozen fruit and vegetables as well as the foods already allowed. We also asked whether further measures may be needed to reduce the risk of vouchers being spent on products that are not included in the scheme.
