A new study published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics looking at more than 8,000 children found the more peanuts a woman eats during her pregnancy, the less likely her child is to have a peanut allergy per wbay.com.

Research showed that pregnant women who ate five servings of peanuts a week saw the biggest benefit; they were 69 percent less likely to report having a child with nut allergies compared to a woman who ate one serving of peanuts or other nuts less than once a month.

Peanut allergies in kids have gone up from 0.4 percent in 1997 to 1.4 percent in 2010, according to the study.

Dr. Samuel Friedlander, an allergy and immunology specialist at the University Hospitals in Cleveland, said doctors should be more conservative about food recommendations for mothers who are expecting.

“The advice is eat a healthy diet and we don’t quite know whether avoidance [of allergens] is helpful or not,” said Friedlander of advising pregnant women on what they should eat. “It shows also we need to be more careful about recommendations we make.”

Up until 2008, many doctors and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) actually advised pregnant women not to eat any peanuts or other known allergenic foods, and avoid giving them to kids until they reached the age of three years old.

Now the AAP says there is no specific allergen-related food that pregnant women should be restrict from their diet while pregnant.
