Earlier, women had been advised to avoid eating peanuts during pregnancy and while breast-feeding if they or the father had an allergy, the Daily Express reported.

Parents were also recommended not to give peanuts to kids until they were at least three years old.

However, in 2008 the Food Safety Agency recommended the advice be dropped.

Now, the Department of Health claims that women can choose to eat peanuts or food containing peanuts as part of a healthy, balanced diet, unless advised not to by their health professional.

"The impact of a pregnant woman's diet on her child's health continues to be debated," Malayka Rahman, from Asthma UK, said.

This study has been published in Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
