Our friends at Bridging the Gap just unveiled an amazing interactive website showcasing extensive data on the laws for school food and beverages in each state — and you’re invited to take a special tour of the site on Tuesday.
Bridging the Gap will host a webinar to digitally walk tour-takers through the features of the website, answer participants’ questions about the data and discuss the policy landscape regarding school snacks and drinks.
The webinar is slated to begin at 11 a.m. Eastern. Click here to register.
State laws for school snacks and beverages widely vary across states and include everything from bans on sugary drinks to limits on fat content. The goal of the new site is to make it easier to access all that information in a visually appealing, easily searchable format.
The data available on the site includes analyses of the overall strength of laws and regulations in every state for seven school years, from 2006-07 to 2012-13, and applies to elementary, middle and high schools. It can also be organized by state, by year, grade level, venue and specific nutritional standards.
