Georgia WIC Food Package
Revised January 2016
The WIC Approved Foods List shows the types, sizes, and packaging of foods WIC participants may receive with their WIC vouchers.
NEW: WIC Approved Foods List Effective January 2016
This update adds more options for the infant food fruits and vegetables and removes packaging options discontinued by the manufacture.
There will be a 3 month transition period for the Approved Foods List, where both lists will be honored (January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016). The Approved Foods List titled "Effective April 2015" will expire April 1, 2016. The Approved Foods List titled "Effective January 2016" should be the only one honored after this date.
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 April 2015 and a new update will be effective January 2016. 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 the Nutrition Unit at 1-800-228-9173.
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.
