There is increasing evidence to support the role of the anti-inflammatory diet in promoting health and disease prevention.  Although it is based on the Mediterranean and Okinawan diets, most traditional diets worldwide are anti-inflammatory. The evidence to support its use in pediatric patients is increasing. As pediatricians, if we can establish healthy patterns of eating in children, we may be able to promote healthy lifestyle habits in adulthood.
