Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods List for 2024


Created February 5, 2024

The Weight Watchers zero point foods list on this page is for their most recent plan that is simply called Points. This program was introduced in November 0f 2022 and rolled out to all members in 2023. This is still the plan they are using for 2024.

With the most current program, there are 2 lists of foods that will not cost you any points. The first list is for most members.

The second list are for those members who are either type 1 or type 2 diabetic. Their "freebies" are modified to be in line with the American Diabetes Association.

If you are new to Weight Watchers, they use points to give each food item a value that you count. Specific nutritional information is used when calculating this value. In addition to these foods that have a points value, they give the members "freebies". These are the foods that have zero points value assigned to them.

These "freebies" are foods that are nutrient rich and healthy options for you. You can use these foods as snacks, build your meals around or use them as side dishes to help you feel full.

When "Zero" Is No Longer "Zero"

As with any rule, there are exceptions and the MyWW zero point foods is no different. Here is some information to keep in mind when tracking your points.

Fruits & Veggies

Fruits and vegetables should be fresh (raw or cooked), canned (with no added sugars or oils) or frozen to count as zero. Dried fruits or vegetables are NOT zero points. When dried, they are considered a snack food which can easily be eaten in large quantities. Because of this reason, if you are eating dried fruits or dried vegetables, remember to calculate and track the points.


If you are adding fruits or vegetables to your morning smoothie, the nutritional value counts in the total for the smoothie recipe.

That's because it's a drink, and not eaten. This applies to the yogurts as well. If used in a smoothie, it counts towards the recipe total.

If fruits or veggies are added to a recipe that you will eat, like salsas or sauces or soups and stews, then these would be zero points towards the recipe.


When shopping for poultry (chicken and turkey) you want the "breast" portion only. It also needs to be skinless, so remove the skin or look for it already skinless. As for fish and shellfish, if it is canned make sure it is without added sugar or oils. If these are added, then they are no longer a MyWW zero point foods item.

Just like with dried fruits or veggies, if these items are dried (like for jerky) then it becomes a snack item and the SmartPoints must be tracked.
