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.
