Re: Vegetarians Face Child Abuse Charge (bobbapink)

I'd side with the parents on this one, if the girl wasn't so obviously malnourished. I think being vegetarian is fine for adults who are careful to maintain a full and balanced diet. Vegetarianism for infants, however, is completely inappropriate. I just don't think vegetarian foods cut it nutritionally for fast-growing infants and children. I hope there's a way besides imprisonment to convince these parents that what they're doing is not in their daughter's best interest.
