Background: Breastfeeding has several health and nutritional benefits. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) for the first six months of life. However, the proportion of EBF in Morocco is decreasing. The breastfeeding type and its relationship with the development of allergies in children it have not been studied in region of Beni Mellal, Morocco. The aim of this study was to assess that breast-feeding can prevent or ameliorate allergies. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study using a questionnaire among mothers visiting primary healthcare clinics in Beni Mellal city and region in Morocco. Mothers were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. Results: We observed that allergens that promote allergy in children are pollen (35%), dust (26%), mite (19%), food (19%), animal hair (15%) and drug (2%). It is concluded that the main allergens causing allergy are pollen. We show that the cutaneous symptoms and ocular symptoms are the most dominant. Our results also show that children who have had not exclusive breastfeeding are the most affected by the allergy. Conclusion: These results provide the best demonstration that exclusive breastfeeding is the most effective nutritional strategy that has been identified for the prevention of different type of allergies: pollen, dust, mite, food, animal hair and drug.
