Malnourished Baby Had Thinning Bones and No Teeth Thanks to Vegan Diet

By

Newsflash: You can't just feed babies anything you want. They need certain nutrients. Nutrients they can't get from a wildly restrictive vegan diet. One Australian couple learned this the hard way in March of last year. 

According to Insider, "two parents in Australia took their daughter to the hospital after she had a seizure." While they were there, doctors discovered that the 19-month-old child was severely malnourished and had rickets, "a condition in which children's bones are softer and weaker because they are deficient in vitamin D." This little girl simply wasn't getting the nutrients she needed.
