Eating Apples and Fish During Pregnancy Benefits Babies

Consumption of apples and fish by mothers during pregnancy could be extremely beneficial for babies, latest research suggests .

Apples are already linked to better lung health when taken by adults, perhaps due to their antioxidant properties, and oily fish in particular contain Omega-3 oils, which, scientists suggest offer several health benefits.

Scientist Graham Devereux and other researchers at the University of Aberdeen quizzed 2,000 pregnant women on their eating habits, and then observed their children's health over a period of five years.

They found that those women who ate four or more apples a week were half as likely to have an asthmatic child compared with those who ate one or fewer.

The researchers also discovered a link between eating more fish during pregnancy and a lower chance of children developing the allergic skin condition eczema, the online edition of BBC News reported.

Women who ate one or more portions of any type of fish during pregnancy had almost half the chance of having a child diagnosed with eczema within the first five years, the researchers said.

The study presented at the recently held American Thoracic Society conference suggests that a simple modification that can be made to a pregnant mother's diet may help protect her child from developing asthma.
