Pregnant mothers who consume peanut and tree nuts during pregnancy may prevent their children from developing nut allergies, researchers found.

Consumption of peanuts and tree nuts during pregnancy was associated with a significant inverse relationship with development of peanut and tree nut allergy in the child, at an odds ratio for nut allergy of 0.31 for children of mothers who ate nuts five or more times a month versus those whose mothers ate nuts less than once a month (95% CI 0.13-0.75, P=0.004 for trend), according to Michael Young, MD, of Boston Children's Hospital in Massachusetts, and colleagues. ... ergy/43579

I ate pb everyday - probably multiple times when I was pregnant! I guess we should have had a dog or pet around during my daughter's first year to prevent allergy- also part of the latest research!

13 year old daughter -- lives with life-threatening allergies to milk, tree nuts and peanuts; seasonal allergies (birch, maple, ragweed); pet allergies; asthma; and eczema
10 year old son - no allergies

I often find this latest research to be a problem. People who have no idea about allergies think it is 100% what they read. For this one my family has quite the opposite situation. I ate NO pn/tn... my children no food allergies. My sister with no allergies ate pn/tn while pg and her child many allergies (and we both had two dogs in the house!!) I don't want to be jaded about new findings but it really seems to be that we really have no answers and we just keep guessing! Too clean, Too dirty, No pets, Too many pets, on a farm, in the city......... :| :scratchy

Me-Allergic to Peanut, Tree Nut, Coconut, Shellfish, ASA and Asthma
My Husband and Children No Allergies
