Pregnant moms worry a lot about what they eat. And with good reason. It’s important to follow a doctor’s advice on getting enough nutrition.
A new study on pregnant women eating peanuts and tree nuts – such as almonds and walnuts – found that those who did gave birth to children who were less likely to develop asthma or allergies than children from mothers who steered clear of nuts.
The results, published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, do not prove that nuts protect against asthma and allergies, but it may make pregnant women feel better about eating them.
