For years, women were told that if they ate too many nuts during pregnancy their children could end up with a nut allergy.  New data dispels that notion and actually states that moms who eat nuts several times per week during pregnancy actually have babies who are less likely to develop a nut allergy.

“Researchers used data from a large prospective study of health and lifestyle among female nurses. They studied 8,205 mothers who were not allergic to nuts and their children born from 1990 to 1994, and found 140 cases of peanut or tree nut allergy among the offspring.

After adjusting for age, race, season of birth, smoking, consumption of fruits and vegetables and other factors, they found that mothers who consumed nuts at least five times a month were almost 70 percent less likely to have a baby with a nut allergy than those who ate nuts less than once a month.” Source

    Thanks for giving this useful piece of information :)
    Even I don’t think that there is any harm in having nuts during pregnancy. Me and my wife are avid nut eaters and she continued doing so before and after her pregnancy. This is because I was always concerned about her snacks ( which according to me has to be mindful and not just eating anything which is junk). My baby and my wife are health :)
