Before, it was considered to be just the opposite. Many organizations and doctors recommended staying away from nuts during pregnancy.

The articles states,

“There is little research implicating even peanuts, specifically, eaten by a pregnant mother and her child’s risk for peanut allergy – much less a wider range of sensitivities. Yet the fear continues to lead many expectant mothers to steer clear of nuts.”
