The Dash Diet is a dietary approach to stop hypertension


Dietitian Sara Robbins appeared on New Mexico Living to show viewers a great plate of food from the Dash Diet. It’s designed to improve overall health and is a dietary approach to stop hypertension.

The food she prepared is friendly to diabetics and tastes great. 

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that all Americans over age 9 should consume three servings of milk products each day (1 cup of milk, 1½ ounces of natural cheese or 2 ounces of processed cheese equals one serving); 2½ cups per day are recommended for children aged 4-8 years; and 2 cups per day for children aged 2-3 years.

Also, enjoying three servings of milk, cheese or yogurt is a delicious way to help build stronger bones and healthier bodies with a powerful package of nutrients. Milk contains nine essential nutrients including protein, calcium, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorus and pantothenic acid. Studies show that dairy foods, when eaten as part of a healthy diet, improve overall diet quality and may help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.
