1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends on history
The jury is still out on that question.
There is some evidence that family ingestion of peanuts is associated with peanut allergy, but that doesn't apply to prenatal exposure in general, dietary restrictions during pregnancy are not recommended to prevent allergies.
