In an op-ed in the New York Times, "Death by Veganism" Nina Planck wrote a great story about the nutrition that a baby needs. For those of you who haven't heard, a couple was convicted of murder, involuntary manslaughter, and curelty for only feeding their baby soy milk and apple juice. Their baby died.
In her article, Planck writes about the nutrition that a baby needs and it is lot more than a vegan diet offers.
The best thing for a baby is breast milk and my wife breast feed our two children. But if the mother is not getting the necessary nutrients, the baby will not get the necessary nutrients.
A vegan diet may be good for some people, but you need to be careful and make sure that you get the right nutrients. But if you are a mother who is breastfeeding or vegan parents, it is necessary to make sure that you and your baby are getting the correct nutrients to grow a healthy baby.
