Decoding “Health Equity” – How Schools Can Make a Difference
02/08/2019
The Farmington School District is part of a growing movement to advance health equity within schools and their surrounding communities. The aim of this work is to dedicate more attention to the students who are at higher risk due to social determinants and conditions. This involves identifying students that face barriers to health, by creating spaces for open dialogue among students, parents, and educators (i.e. focus groups, wellness meetings, safety forums). These assessments will shed light on how to improve the school environment and policies to better support all students in achieving optimal health.

Got Milk? Why Dairy is important for Children
12/11/2018
Consuming dairy is important for bone health, as it provides the necessary nutrients - calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and protein – for building bones and teeth. Childhood and adolescence are critical periods to encourage a diet with adequate dairy intake, as the body is continually building bone mass. By age 30, the bones will reach their maximum strength and density, as known as peak bone mass. Not eating enough dairy can put children at increased risk of osteoporosis later in life, as well as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.
