      Quiz as a method of nutrition education and communication.
      The quiz format provides motivation not only for participants, but also for the audience, because it provides 4 kinds of gratification and appeals: (1) Self-rating appeal: On a primary level, it serves as a tool of self-assessment of intellectual status or subject knowledge in relation to the others; (2) Social interaction: Questions can encourage social interaction because they can be discussed within the team and at audience level; (3) Excitement appeal: The appeal of winning a prize or being rated as superior among peers; and (4) Educational appeal: Quizzes serve as educational tools by encouraging thinking and learning.
