The Department’s pavilion comprises a podium dedicated to introducing its events jointly with its health-affiliated associations. Also, there is be a special section for awareness competitions, such as the “Wall Game”. The concept of this game relies on photo cubes.

Some of these cubes are showing healthy food, while others are showing types of food which are detrimental to health. The aim of this game is to let children discriminate between both types of displayed food.

Also, other photo cubes contain sport exercises stimulating activity and thinking, in addition to various health questions aiming to educate children on the importance of healthy food and to shun junk food with a highlight of its hazards.

Further to that, the pavilion contains TV showing lots of awareness and educational shows and movies dedicated to the children.

On the sidelines of these activities, there will be direct communication with the parents at the pavilion through the female volunteers and health educators to answer their queries about their children’s health and nutrition, besides distributing health leaflets and brochures.
