A study published in Pediatric Allergy and Immunology reported that children eating a diet high in fruity vegetables saw a reduced number of allergies and wheezing.
Fruity vegetables that they tested and had a positive influence included tomatoes, eggplants, cucumber, green beans and zucchini.
Additionally, they found children that ate fish or fish oil also saw a reduction in allergic reactions.
This is another in a line of studies that is showing the effects of diet on every day conditions like allergies, weight gain, disease and longevity, especially in children. Keeping children's diets clear of processed and modified foods, and high in fresh fruits and vegetables will gain them fewer sick days and more fun growing up in a healthy environment.
