Yale Center Launches School Nutrition Site

The site is intended to be a place for parents to gain information.

Yale University is helping students win the food fight.

This week, the school introduced a new website to help parents learn about school nutrition and regulations on what foods can be served on campus.

The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity's new site is called Rudd SPARK, or Supporting Parent Advocates with Resources and Knowledge.

The site is intended to help parents understand local, state and federal regulations on school food. It also provides information on research, school nutrition, successful practices used by school districts and other resources.

Experts say parents are perfect spokesmen for their children’s health. The hope is that the site will serve as a place for them to chat with school administrators, policymakers and the food industry.

The site is free to navigate and use.
