Washington DC: A new study has claimed that eating oily fish may help keeping nasal allergies at bay for kids, reports ANI.

Diana Di Fabio of the Cleveland Clinic Children said that it is possible that fish consumption might help prevent the development of rhinitis. A healthy diet complete with a variety of items from all food groups may have a similar effect in promoting general wellbeing. Fabio said that fish consumption at the age of eight may simply serve as an indicator of high dietary quality, the Fox News reported.

She added that children, who were likelier to consume those foods, also had a more adventurous palate and were likelier to consume a balanced diet. In the study, parents and kids completed questionnaires detailing how often the children consumed 98 foods and beverages common in Sweden and for fish; they were asked specifically about oily varieties such as herring, mackerel and salmon, as well as less oily alternatives like codfish, Pollock, pike, tuna and fish fingers.
