Smile What if Ganz made a Wheel of Nutrition? Come in and say you support today!

So, on the GEDCT this morning, we were having a conversation about how it was so wrong to put spinach on the Wheel of Yum (I mean, who thinks spinach is yummy?) so I'm like, "Why don't they put all this health food on a Wheel of Nutrition or something?". And thus, the WON was born (hey, WON's a pretty cool accronym! Like, I won something on the WON! ).

Here's how it would work:

It would be just like you're average wheel, except the prizes would be food-pyramid related. [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] would probably have to team up with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture, for those who don't know) so that they could use/advertise the pyramid on Webkinz. [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] could even advertise healthy eating and excersise (the links could even take you to mypyramid.gov to learn more about the pyramid). As for the wheel itself, it would have ten sections (7 for the things on the pyramid, and 3 for random KC prizes). The food pyramid sections would be their color on the pyramid (i.e., milk would be blue, oils would be yellow, meat and beans would be purple, etc.), excersise would be a light green (veggies are dark green) and KC would be a dark blue (milk is a light blue). If you landed on a certain color of the food group, like fruits, you would get a fruit. Excersise would be the "rare prize", like a special treadmill or pool or something, and Random KC is pretty self-explanatory.

How would this benefit [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate], you ask? Well, it would encourage kids to eat healthy (as my friend Quack Quack portrayed, "Mommy, my Pegasus loves carrots, so I want them too!") and get active because their Webkinz were enjoying it. Parents would fall in love with this because [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] is finally advertising something good and not movies and more stuff for their kids to buy, and it would also educate kids on the pyramid, which could help future generations lead a healthier livestyle.

Ingenious? I think so. It's pretty much a win-win situation. If you agree with me, just say you support. Seriously, it's not that hard. Get enough supporters and maybe we can show the idea to [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate]. But if you don't like it for some reason, just tell me why and maybe your critisizm can improve this idea even further. All types of feedback help.

Thanks for reading my very long and smarticle sounding post

Hold on a sec, I think spinach IS yummy! I love it fresh in salads or wraps, and it adds a layer of deliciousness to lasagna!
