Eating nuts during pregnancy could reduce child allergy

29th August 2012

A study published in Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology has suggested that eating nuts during pregnancy cuts asthma risk in children.

Women had at one time been advised to avoid eating nuts in pregnancy and while breast feeding but in 2008 the Food Safety Agency recommended the advice be dropped and now the Department of Health says women can choose to eat peanuts or food containing peanuts as part of a healthy, balanced diet, unless advised not to by their health professional.
