Best Start Foods – Update Event - 14 February
New regulations for Best Start Foods were laid in parliament on 07 December 2023.
Subject to Parliamentary approval, the changes from these amendments will come into effect from 26 February 2024.
While the main aim is to remove any income thresholds for qualifying benefits, Social Security Scotland have also taken this opportunity to further align Best Start Foods with their other Five Family Payments (Best Start Grant payment and Scottish Child Payment) along with making a number of technical changes. It has been forecasted that such changes will enable an additional 20,000 individuals to receive Best Start Foods.

We are hosting a series of free online events to provide external stakeholders and partners with an overview of the changes. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and provide feedback.
