The prevalence of hypertension is increasing in the world and in Indonesia. The disease, known as the silent disease, is experienced by many people, but diagnosed too late. As a result, the impact is much greater, namely death from heart disease and stroke. Lifestyle and food intake are modifiable risk factors for hypertension. In addition, gender, age, and genetic history are risk factors that cannot be changed, but by identifying them, it can increase awareness to avoid other risk factors. This study aimed to identify risk factors for hypertension in Tarowang Village. This research was conducted with a cross-sectional study design, total sample was 116 people chosen by purposive sampling method. Hypertension defined using JNC 7 category and measured by ABN Spectrum Aneroid Sphygmomanometer. The results of this study indicate that the prevalence of hypertension was 18.97%. Age and nutritional status have significant relationship with hypertension (0.004 and 0.021, respectively). The variable consumption of vegetables and fruits, although it did not show a significant relationship, the hypertension proportion was still higher in respondents who did not eat vegetables and fruit every day. Promoting healthy behavior was  needed to prevent increasing hypertension prevalence. Implementation from nutrition guidelines such as maintaining weight, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption were important in Tarowang Village.
