Vegan Babies, is it Possible?

Veganism has become a very popular topic of discussion with many adults participating in this change of diet, but is it possible for babies to be raised vegan with proper guidance? The recent case in Australia observed how a couple had left their baby “severely malnourished” who was on a strict vegan diet. With cases like these, many are doubting the ability for babies to be raised vegan and obtain the necessary nutrients to ensure a healthy development. However, experts claim that children can be entirely plant-based but only with the proper guidance, ideally with the participation of a pediatrician and a dietitian.
