Cow's milk allergy (CMA) is one of the earliest manifestations of allergic diseases. Early dietary factors, like maternal diet during pregnancy, may play a role in the development of allergic diseases in the offspring. We aimed to investigate the association between maternal intake of fatty acids during pregnancy and the risk of CMA in the offspring. Our study was conducted in a population-based cohort, the Finnish Type 1 Diabetes Prediction and Prevention study. We collected the maternal dietary data by a validated food frequency questionnaire. We obtained the information on CMA in the study participants (n=448) from registers and from the parents. Dietary data and information on CMA were available for 4921 children. We used logistic regression in the analyses and fatty acid intakes were energy adjusted. The maternal intake of saturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), n-3 PUFA, n-6 PUFA, trans fatty acids, ratio of n-3 PUFA to n-6 PUFA or ratio of linoleic acid to alpha-linolenic acid were not associated with the risk of CMA in the offspring when adjusted for perinatal factors, background factors, parental history of asthma or allergic rhinitis and infant animal contacts. The intake of alpha-linolenic acid was associated with a decreased risk (OR 0.72; 95%CI 0.56-0.93) of CMA in the offspring of mothers without a history of allergic rhinitis or asthma. In conclusion the maternal intake of fatty acids during pregnancy is not associated with the risk of CMA in the offspring.
