DASH Health Education Kit

Research shows the low-fat Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) eating plan, which includes two to three servings of dairy foods and eight to ten servings of fruits and vegetables, may help manage blood pressure.  In fact, a trio of minerals found in dairy foods – calcium, potassium and magnesium – may play an important role in maintaining healthy blood pressure.

See below for handouts, recipes, and other patient and client education materials on dairy foods’ critical role in blood pressure maintenance.
