Parents Under Fire For Killing Their Infant By Feeding It An All-Vegan Diet

By

A 7-month-old baby in Belgium tragically passed away as a result of the strict diet his parents fed him, which was entirely glutton and  lactose free. The parents, identified only as Peter S., 34, and Sandrina V., 30, self-diagnosed their child with food allergies without ever  consulting a doctor. According to public prosecutors: 

The  parents determined their own diagnosis that their child was gluten intolerant and had a lactose allergy. Not a single doctor had a dossier about Lucas and child protection services did not know about them. 

In court, the parents claimed they never took their child to a doctor because they never noticed anything wrong. The mother added that  sometimes Lucas (the child) would gain a little weight, then lose it, which "she thought was natural." Van Meirvenne, the parents' attorney, told the court: 

Lucas had an eating disorder. He got cramps when he was fed with a bottle and his parents tried out alternatives.
