HOUSTON -

New research shows it is safe for expecting mothers, who don't have nut allergies, to eat peanuts and other varieties of nuts.

Researchers say in fact, when women ate nuts more than five times a month during pregnancy, their kids had lower risk of developing a nut allergy.

Doctors say although research does show a positive outcome in the children whose mothers ate nuts during pregnancy, they don't recommend expecting mothers to start eating nuts to prevent their child from developing a nut allergy.
