Meet the ZeroPoint® foods

We’re giving you the full rundown, from A (apples) to Z (zucchini).
Published October 7, 2021 | Updated November 14, 2022

ZeroPoint foods are a big deal around here for good reason. That’s because they’re—you guessed it—0 Points®.

These nutritional powerhouses were specifically chosen since they are nutrient-, vitamin-, and mineral-packed foods that serve as the foundation of healthy eating, and they’re generally critical to your overall health. And the best part? You don’t have to weigh, measure, or track them—no matter how often you reach for them.

Want the full list of what’s included? See below! Just don’t forget that once you add any ingredients with a Points value to a ZeroPoint food (think oil, butter, dressings, or sauces), it won’t be 0 Points. Be sure to check a packaged item, like store-bought guac, for the full ingredients—or pop it into the Barcode Scanner in the app.
