SALT LAKE CITY -- Monday is nationwide Family Day, a day designated to have a traditional family dinner with your family.
Utah's first lady, Jeanette Herbert, joined with a coalition of Utah groups at an event at a local grocery store Monday to advocate for simple pleasure of eating a sit-down meal as a family.
"Our lifestyles today have become so busy that having a sit-down dinner with your family has become more an exception than the norm," Herbert said. "Yet having a regular dinner time with your family can have a positive impact on families and family relationships."
The first lady said children who eat at least five meals a week with their families are one-third less likely to be involved in underage drinking.
