    Angry Vegan couple jailed for giving 18-month-old restrictive diet

    Vegan couple jailed for giving 18-month-old child restrictive diet leaving her extremely malnourished

    A vegan couple from Sweden was sentenced to three months in jail on Thursday for putting their 18-month-old child on a restrictive diet and leaving the girl malnourished and near death.

    The parents’ “serious negligence had put their daughter in a life-threatening situation,” the judge said, according to The Local. The couple was also ordered to pay $6,000 in damages to the child.

    The child was reportedly unregistered with Swedish authorities and was being fed a diet consisting of breast milk, brown rice and potatoes. She was taken to the hospital in serious condition in February, according to The Local. The girl spent three weeks at the hospital and was placed into foster care.

    The girl’s condition was “worse than anything we have seen at the hospital before,” one doctor reportedly said. Three other doctors said her condition was due to “prolonged starvation.”


    “According to their ideological belief that the daughter was a citizen of the world, her parents did not even report the birth to any authority,
    have her checked at a pediatric center, or even weigh or measure her growth. Nor has the girl been vaccinated or examined by a doctor,” a court statement said.

    The couple’s attorneys argued that prosecutors couldn’t prove that the girl’s condition was due to nothing more than a “stomach bug,” The Local reported. They described the child’s weight as “comparable to that of a 6-month-old.”


    When the parents are released from jail, they will be allowed to spend eight weeks living with the child at a supervised residential care facility.

    I read that all vegan parents who put their growing children on vegan diets should be jailed. A growing body needs a lot of nutrition that a vegan diet can't provide.

    doubt the diet had much to do with when the parents seem to have been a bunch of stoners.
    feeding the child was probably not something that entered their minds very often.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    A vegan diet is pretty vague, but yeah, if you cannot provide all the basic nutritional necessities for a child then you shouldn't have one.

    EDIT: Yeah, it seems like these people are absolute fucking nutcases.

    Honestly I don't know enough about an 18 month olds digestive capabilities to know if a vegan diet is viable or not but even as an adult getting all the nutrition you need from a vegan diet requires a lot of research and planning. Can't imagine an 18 month old is able to eat/process a lot of the things an adult could which would make it even harder. To be fair, this sounds less about a vegan diet than the parents just being fucking stupid, lazy and frankly, nuts. The whole child of the world and never registering her or seeing a doctor is a pretty clear indicator of that.

    I'm glad they've gone to prison and the kids been put somewhere where hopefully it'll get the care it needs.

    Those parents should never be allowed to have children again.

    Vegan diets only work due to modern medicine and technology, if it didn't exist it wouldn't work.

    oh boy, this will be good.
    "According to their ideological belief that the daughter was a citizen of the world, her parents did not even report the birth to any authority,..."


    although i think the "parents" are in need of a new way of getting hammered, like a sledge.

    I hope the child finds a proper family to care for her. I personally wouldn’t allow the parents to see the child at all. They obviously don’t love their kid, if they say they do it shouldn’t matter because they’re obviously delusional.

    A lot of nutritionists here that know more than the American Dietetic Association apparently. It is their official statement through evidence based research that vegan and vegetarian diets are suitable for all stages of life, including infancy when appropriately planned. These people clearly had other issues since they never reported their child being born or even bring her to a doctor. These people are no different than people who are raw vegans (eating only uncooked food like fruit and salads) and those who only eat meat. These people do not represent level headed vegans as a whole.

    If anyone is genuinely curious on how to properly raise children on a vegan diet I would recommend The Unnatural Vegan on youtube. She covers what she eats during pregnancy, what she feeds her children, criticizes extreme vegans such as this couple, and backs up all of her claims with peer reviewed studies.

    What a load of nonsense. This kind of thinking is just as bad as those opposing veganism. Either side extremes are filled with bunch of zealots.

    An 18 month old wouldn’t really be eating meat anyway. It’s not required. This is just about the parents severely malnourishing their daughter.

    Yes.

    Plants are more abundant, and are a direct source (skips the middle man & energy loss transferred), unlike meat.
    Herbivores (i.e. Primary consumers) are typically bigger and in some cases "stronger" b/c the abundance of energy available to them. All the time.
    As a Moose or Elephant, you're always eating the direct source of energy & that source (plants) are everywhere in those habitats (seasonally sometimes). Gorillas are also omnivores, as are all primates. They'll eat meat when it's available or easy to obtain in some situations.

    Yeah, no. I rather be healthy than a vegan.
