To Submit a Food Product for Review:

The Georgia WIC Approved Foods List is updated approximately every two years**.  The previous update went into effect December 2013 and a new update will be effective January 2015.  A request for food submissions will be sent out to manufacturers nine to twelve months prior to the update.  To receive this submission request and to be added to the manufacturer contact list, please contact our Food Package Specialist at Laura.Iberkleid@dph.ga.gov

After submissions are received, a thorough analysis will be conducted based on USDA guidelines, nutritional quality, availability, cost, and acceptance of the product by WIC participants in Georgia.  The updated list will be emailed to all manufacturers on the contact list as soon as it has been finalized and approved.  The revised list will be added to this page when finalized.
