Adding fish to babies' diets during the first year of life might reduce their risk of asthma later on, a study by Dutch researchers suggests. This window of protection appears to occur between 6 months and 12 months of age. Adding fish to the diet before that or not at all in the first year seems to carry an increased risk of wheezing and shortness of breath, the researchers said.
