Eat a balanced diet
Fruit and vegetables will lower your blood pressure, so try to include lots in your diet.
As you will know, adults should eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day and make up over a third of the food we eat.
One portion is 80 grams, which is roughly the size of your fist.
Mix up the fruit you eat, but watch out for added sugar, salt or fats.
Starchy foods such potatoes, bread, rice and pasta should take up another third of what we eat.
Dairy and dairy alternatives, protein, and fats should take up the final third.
Don’t forget to drink between six and eight cups of fluids a day (or more).
This can be water, lower fat milks, lower sugar or sugar-free drinks, tea or coffee.
