The Children’s Nutrition Blog: More on the nut allergy and breastfeeding study

Professor Katie Allen of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute had this to say in another ABC report on the topic:

“The report only asked [about] breastfeeding, not about maternal dietary practices. Therefore the authors cannot conclude in any way whatsoever about maternal dietary practices including exposure to nuts and its risk of peanut allergy,” says Allen.

Further, as the article states, recent research into food allergies actually suggests the opposite is true. Do read the article, and share it on your social media platform of choice!
