Mediterranean diet in pregnancy may curb allergies

Women who eat a Mediterranean diet while pregnant could help stave off asthma and allergies in their children, a new study suggests.

The traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in plant-based foods -- vegetables, fruits, whole grain breads and cereals, legumes, and nuts -- as well as olive oil and fish. Adherents consume low to moderate amounts of dairy products and eggs, lesser amounts of white meat, and infrequently eat red meat.

Some studies have suggested that such eating patterns can lower children's odds of asthma symptoms and skin and nasal allergies. But it's unclear whether women can affect their children's future allergy risks by following a Mediterranean diet during pregnancy.

Jamie Lynn & Maddie Home in Mississippi

Proud new mom Jamie Lynn Spears and her newborn daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge, returned home at 1:45 am Saturday morning. And by "home," OK! magazine reveals that this means the Liberty, Mississippi, house the Zoey 101 star purchased last month to start her new life with fiancé Casey Aldridge and their baby.

It had been incorrectly reported by US Weekly and several other media outlets that baby Maddie had been taken back to Serenity, the Kentwood, Louisiana, estate owned by Jamie Lynn's big sis Britney Spears. After all this is the house where Jamie Lynn grew up and where her mother Lynne Spears still resides.

However, the tabloid also reports that many reporters and photographers fell victim to a well-choreograped ruse, which had Casey and Lynne drive back to Serenity with a Jamie Lynn look-alike in the back of the car, thus allowing mom and daughter to make their exit in private, driven separately by private security guards and escorted by state troopers back to their home in Liberty.
