Maternal prenatal and/or postnatal n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) supplementation for preventing allergies in early childhood

Highlights: Cochrane review

Application to Dietetic Practice: There is limited evidence that supplementation has a very modest benefit on allergic development. The evidence is not sufficient to routinely recommend supplementation, but it should not be discouraged, if clients inquire about it.
