Wheel of Chocolate Review

On Saturday, April 19, 2008 the Crissy Field Center had an event called Earth Stroll where young children ages 4-10 and their families participated in many environmental and educational booths concerning the Earth. There were a total of 18 booths; some along the marsh and airfield while some were in the Crissy Field Center and some were in the Crissy Field Plaza.

Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders (I-YEL) ran a booth called the Wheel of Chocolate where participants had to spin a wheel which determined how many strawberries they would receive and then they were asked a nutritional trivia question related to organic foods. When they got the answer right, they were given their chocolate covered strawberry. The strawberries and chocolate used are organic and from Rainbow Grocery.

The purpose of our booth was to educate the public about nutrition and the importance of organic foods. We achieved that goal by asking nutritional trivia questions and then giving them the answers afterwards. Every participant walked away from our booth with a new fact learned.
