WIC Approved Foods

MI WIC APL (Approved Products List)

A copy of the most recently published APL in Excel format is available below. The APL lists all UPCs of the WIC allowed foods and PLUs for fresh fruits and vegetables. Please note that as of right now, multiple items do not have detailed product descriptions and substitute formulas are listed with the same description as the formula they are able to replace.

It is in an excel spreadsheet with the complete APL on the first tab with newly added products highlighted, and separate tab to show recently discontinued products.

Though the APL is updated regularly, the posted version may not contain all authorized UPCs or PLUs. Michigan WIC intends to update the posted APL monthly.
