Children who eat fish once a week before they turn one ‘are up to 40 per cent less likely to develop eczema and asthma’, claim scientists.
Kids under one should be eating more fish ASAP!
Norwegian University of Science and Technology scientists examined the diets of hundreds of youngsters.
Results showed six-year-olds fed fish at least once a week as an infant were 28 and 40 per cent less likely to develop eczema and asthma, respectively.
Previous studies have also found that omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect which combats disease.
Asthma is caused by inflamed airways that get clogged with mucus. Inflammation also plays a role in eczema.
The authors claim the ballooning number of people suffering with these health issues are due to snacks loaded with polyunsaturated fatty acids which have lowered the amount of omega-3 acids being consumed.
The study results
The study, led by Professor Torbjørn Øien of the university, analysed data from more than 4,000 six year olds.
This was compared with survey responses from their mothers, detailing how much fish the youngsters were fed.
