Authorized Foods

The Authorized Foods List (AFL) is reviewed every two years in accordance with Ohio Administrative Code 3701-42-05 (A). The State WIC office will notify food manufacturers prior to the effective date of any food category being reviewed. Manufacturers will receive a letter with instructions for submitting products for consideration using a database developed by the state of Ohio. Manufacturers may only submit food items under consideration and must submit the requested information by the established deadline. Food items not submitted using the database will not be considered for authorization.

If you would like to be on the mailing list to receive information regarding submitting products for consideration, please email your name, address, phone number, contact information and type of products you manufacture to  

An updated Ohio WIC Authorized Food List will be posted to this web site with as much noticed as possible. Click below to view the current AFL or the AFL effective January 1, 2018.
