This year’s edition is set to be the biggest and most memorable event for children and their parents. For the first time, Inter Nursery and Kindergarten Schools competition is introduced this year.
The GMC Annual Healthy Baby Contest & Exhibition 2014 will be held by GMC Hospital, Ajman on the 25th & 26th of April 2014 at the Gulf Medical University. Every year, the contest is held under the patronage of Mr. Thumbay Moideen, Founder President Thumbay Group UAE, promoters of GMC Hospitals and Gulf Medical University.
The contest helps to raise community awareness and to inculcate health and nutrition habits for children at an early age for a healthy living & good lifestyle. The contest also promotes health consciousness among mothers regarding different factors affecting the health of children and detecting ill health & sickness at early stages and also a personal and friendly interaction with our renowned doctors.
According to the organizers, the selection of the ‘Healthy Baby’ will be done according to the physical and mental growth, complete immunization, and general appearance of the child and parent’s knowledge about childcare. The following categories based on age are open – from 3 months to 1 year, 1 to 2 years, 2 to 3 years, 3 to 4years and 4 years to 5years. Apart from prizes in five age group categories the participants will also have prizes in the following categories – Curly Hair, Sparkling Eyes, Sunshine smile and chubby cheeks.
Renowned pediatricians, apart from the experts at GMC Hospital will judge the participants. We are receiving an overwhelming response for this year’s edition and we expect over 300 children to participate this year, said one of the organizing committee members.
Past events have been of remarkable success with an attendance of over 2000. The popularity of this event amongst the parents & children has inspired us to get much bigger and better this year, and we expect the attendance to cross 4000.
This year we have introduced an Inter Nursery and Kindergarten Schools competition on the second day of the event. Children from many Nurseries, Kindergarten and Primary Schools from all over the country have registered to participate in Dance, Songs and Talent Show competitions.
