Epidemiologic studies suggest a relationship between maternal nutrition during pregnancy and the occurrence of asthma and atopic conditions during childhood. However, individual study results are conflicting. The objective of this meta‐analysis was to critically examine the current evidence for an association between nutrition (dietary patterns, food groups, vitamins, or oligo‐elements) ingestion during pregnancy and asthma, wheeze, or atopic conditions in childhood.

TLDR
This systematic review focused on non‐allergen‐specific modifying factors of the maternal diet in pregnancy on allergy outcomes in their offspring.
Maternal diet before and during pregnancy and risk of asthma and allergic rhinitis in children
TLDR
Based on the findings, preconceptional and prenatal maternal intake of certain type of food groups may be preventive against asthma, wheezing and allergic rhinitis, whereas higher maternal consumption of meat before pregnancy may increase the risk of wheezed, allergic Rhinitis and atopic dermatitis in young children.
Maternal intake of sugar during pregnancy and childhood respiratory and atopic outcomes
TLDR
It is suggested that a higher maternal intake of free sugar during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of atopy and atopic asthma in the offspring, independently of sugar intake in early childhood.
Maternal dietary antioxidant intake in pregnancy and childhood respiratory and atopic outcomes: birth cohort study
TLDR
A higher maternal intake of zinc during pregnancy may improve lung function, and especially forced vital capacity, in the offspring, according to the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children.

Association between maternal vegetable intake during pregnancy and allergy in offspring: Japan Environment and Children’s Study
TLDR
The maternal intake of vegetables and various related nutrients during pregnancy had little or no association with any of the allergic outcomes, including asthma, wheezing, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and food allergy, in offspring at one year of age.
Can Getting Enough Vitamin D during Pregnancy Reduce the Risk of Getting Asthma in Childhood?
TLDR
Although the results of RCTs showed a potential association with asthma-related phenotypes rather than asthma per se, the low toxicity of vitamin D supplements make it tempting to speculate that pregnant women at a high risk of obtaining a child with asthma may be benefited, especially if they are vitamin D deficient.
Breastfeeding and perinatal exposure, and the risk of asthma and allergies
TLDR
A diverse range of exposures were associated with allergic disease risk, highlighting the susceptibility of children during the perinatal period and Clinicians should reinforce public health messages concerning maternal obesity, smoking, and breastfeeding.

Maternal vitamin D status has been reported to be associated with childhood allergic diseases. However, this association remains to be fully elucidated.
Maternal diet in pregnancy and child's respiratory outcomes: an individual participant data meta-analysis of 18 000 children
TLDR
A suboptimal maternal diet in pregnancy, as defined by a higher inflammatory potential or low quality of the diet, does not play an important role in the development of respiratory diseases in childhood.

TLDR
Risk of asthma and allergic outcomes in the offspring in relation to maternal food consumption during pregnancy in a Finnish birth cohort study is found to be linked with maternal food intake during pregnancy.
Maternal food consumption during pregnancy and the longitudinal development of childhood asthma.
TLDR
Results of this study indicate an increased risk of daily versus rare consumption of nut products during pregnancy on childhood asthma outcomes, which needs to be replicated by other studies before dietary advice can be given to pregnant women.

TLDR
This data indicates that intake of n‐3 fatty acids during pregnancy could play a role in the risk of asthma and atopy in the offspring.
Maternal vitamin D intake during pregnancy and early childhood wheezing.
TLDR
Increasing maternal vitamin D intakes during pregnancy may decrease the risk of wheeze symptoms in early childhood, according to a comparison of the highest and lowest quintiles of maternal total vitamin D intake.
Maternal food consumption during pregnancy and asthma, respiratory and atopic symptoms in 5-year-old children
TLDR
There was no evidence for associations between maternal intake of most foods during pregnancy and asthma, respiratory and allergic outcomes in 5-year-old children, except for apples and fish.
Maternal intake of vitamin D during pregnancy and risk of recurrent wheeze in children at 3 y of age.
TLDR
In the northeastern United States, a higher maternal intake of vitamin D during pregnancy may decrease the risk of recurrent wheeze in early childhood, according to a validated food-frequency questionnaire.
Mediterranean diet is associated with reduced asthma and rhinitis in Mexican children
TLDR
Diet during pregnancy and childhood has been suggested to play an important role in children’s asthma risk, and the adherence to a Mediterranean dietary pattern was associated with both childhood asthma and allergic rhinitis.
