What Should I Put on My Plate?
An interactive simulation that encourages participants to re-evaluate the choices they are making in the food they consume. Students are placed in an environment where they must actively decide who in their "family" should consume, how much, how frequently and what they should eat. It forces people to bring back the active element that is often lost in college environments with "all you can eat" dining plans, like the one we have here at Wheaton.
