There are studies "proving" all sorts of things and the devil is often in the detail (or the population size, or the way the results are measured etc.).
This study uses data from many other large scale trials.
It's looking at fish oils (great source of Omega 3's) and probiotics and how taking these in pregnancy and during lactation can reduce allergy and eczema risks.
I'm a huge proponent of making sure our children get enough both Omega 3's and probiotics in their diets as there are so many positives in doing so. I will be watching developments in this research in pregnant women with fascination.
I'm always happy to brainstorm how to get more nutrients into a child's diet via food that rocks. Even if you do have a selective eater! Just give me a shout on the post.
