Researchers at the French National Institute of Agriculture (Inra) and Besancon Medical Center have found that children who eat cheese at an early age are less likely to suffer from allergies and asthma, according to the Western France newspaper. However, the association between cheese varieties and consumption frequency and reduced risk remains to be studied.

Researchers have found that children who eat cheese are less likely to suffer from skin or food allergies, according to the findings. This study largely confirms the health function of dairy products.

Researchers collected dietary data from 931 children aged 0 to 6. The results showed that infants aged 12 to 18 months who ate cheese were significantly less likely to suffer from asthma and allergies to food and inhalants. There are six types of cheese involved in the study: squeezed and semi-squeezed cheese balls, fresh cheese, blue cheese, cake-like soft cheese and farm cheese.

The research is still in the observation stage. Next studies need to confirm whether this reduction in risk is related to the type of cheese or the frequency of consumption, the researchers said.
