On the occasion of the inauguration of 'Zaduna,' a campaign targeting children in the age group of 5 ï¿½ 10 years on food safety, the characters of the 'Zaduna' cartoon program toured the various offices of Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority. The characters gave away gifts and paused for photo opportunities with the staff.
The programs at the premises of ADFCA were meant to encourage staff participation in the various activities and campaigns of the Authority as well as to raise awareness among them about food safety matters. 'Zaduna' is part of the concerted efforts on the part of the Authority to spread food safety awareness among all sections of the community.
This campaign aims at educating children on the right methods of dealing with food. Children being very sensitive as far as food is concerned and since they are receptive to ideas at this stage of their development, ADFCA believes making them aware of food safety issues will also influence their families and close kin.
