A Japanese study reveals that eating greens may just be exactly what you need to give your baby an eczema-free life. According to Asia One, “A larger intake of green and yellow vegetables, citrus fruit, and vegetables and fruit high in beta-carotene (generally those that are red and orange coloured) may lessen the risk of having a baby with eczema (itchy, dry, red patchy skin)”. This was based on a study conducted by Dr Yoshihiro Miyake at Fukuoka University.
