Early intake of fish prevents asthma

Parent Interventions

Children should be introduced to fish or cod liver oil early in life, when they are around one year old. Such children have significantly reduced occurrences of eczema, wheezing and asthma at age six, ranging from 28 to 40 per cent fewer occurrences for the various conditions.

Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology's (NTNU) compared children who ate fish at least once a week until they were two years old with children who consumed less fish than that.

The baseline for the study was data from a survey conducted among more than 4,000 families, which investigated the relationship between the mother's or child's fish intake and the child's development of eczema, asthma and hay fever.

Consuming fish at the age of one year does not have the same protective effect.


As the mother's intake of fish and cod liver oil during pregnancy and breastfeeding or the child's intake at two years, according to the study.
