Could eating your favorite low-fat yogurt during pregnancy cause your baby to have asthma? A new study suggests that it's possible. Harvard School of Public Health researchers looked at yogurt consumption during pregnancy in Danish women and the incidence of asthma and allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, in their children. Milk consumption during pregnancy did not increase the risk of asthma. In fact, it might protect against asthma. However, women who ate low-fat yogurt with fruit once daily had children who had a higher incidence of asthma. Their children were 1.6 times more likely to have asthma by seven years of age. Obviously, more research is necessary and the "researchers are now looking into whether non-fat related nutrient components in yogurt may contribute in increasing this risk, or if non-fat yogurt consumption is a marker of other dietary and lifestyle factors."
