September is Healthy Family Meals Month in Utah

Governer Herbert has declared September to be Healthy Family Meal Month in the State of Utah.

The Governor made this declaration in recognition of the benefits that come when families engage in supportive activities, such as eating meals together.  Children who are engaged with their parents are more likely to limit the use of harmful or illegal substances, acheive greater success in school, develop a higher self-esteem, experience fewer mental and behavioral issues, have lower obesity rates, cultivate improved communication skills, and develop healthier eating and lifestyle habits. To read the declaration, click "Read More" You can also visit the Utah Family Meals website for more great information and ideas at http://utahfamilymeals.org/

September is National Preparedness Month

The 2014 National Preparedness Month theme is: “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”.  This is a great chance to take action to get yourself more prepared for an emergency.

5-2-1-0: Daily Goals for Healthy Living

The 5-2-1-0 healthy living campaign helps individuals improve their health by providing simple, daily guidelines that encourage nutritious foods and an active lifestyle. 5-2-1-0 stands for 5 servings of fruit and vegetables each day; 2 hours or less of screen time (TV, computer, video games) per day; 1 hour or more of active playtime or exercise per day; and 0 sugar sweetened drinks. 

The health department created some videos to help explain the 5-2-1-0 campaign as well as provide some helpful tips to incorporate these ideas into your own life. Click "Read More" to view these videos on our YouTube page or visit http://bit.ly/1m0ZkqN for more information
