Fruits, vegetables lower blood pressure
A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products in very early childhood may prevent or delay the development of adult hypertension.
In general, children who ate more fruits, vegetables, and dairy products at younger ages tended to continue their healthy eating habits in early adolescence. It is unclear how a higher consumption of fruits, vegetables, and dairy products lowers blood pressure. People with such diets may have healthier dietary patterns in general. For example, children who ate more fruits and vegetables also tended to consume more whole grains and less fat than their peers. The above results suggest that a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products in very early childhood may prevent or delay the development of adult hypertension. Hence, it's the parent's responsibility to start children off on the right track.
