Veggie babies should be the norm!! It's completely possible to raise a healthy vegetarian baby, just like it's possible to raise a healthy VEGAN baby like mine will be (: Plan plan plan, research research research, these are absolutely needed to make sure you are providing a WIDE variety of foods. You can't raise a baby on french fries and juice and expect it to be healthy, just as an adult vegan can't be healthy if they only eat junk food. Yay for veg babies!!

Soy Milk, tofu and Wheat Gluten?..Soy and Wheat are two of the main allergens in our western diet..

It is a naive idea to think along these outdated nutritional guidelines.

Soy, in addition to being heavily bio-estrogenic, also in an incomplete protein for growing children.

Wheat gluten sets the stage for innumerable health issues and obesity later on.

Instead look at what indigenous vegetarian peoples have survived on for millenia - Raw Milk, Raw Yoghurt, Legumes, Lentils, Ghee,

I have a friend that raised her boy as a Vegan and that kid has the most beautiful hair, face and skin I have ever seen, and he is very healthy he has a muscular body too, he's 20 years old now, and all the girls are always after him, he is really good looking, so the answer is yes you can raise a child on a Vegetarian or Vegan diet, my friend did!!

No part of an egg can be included in a true Vegetarian or Vegan diet. Eggs contain chicken DNA, which include all the makings ANIMAL parts, including feathers, beaks BLOOD, etc. Other than that, I thought the article was fine. Thank you for posting, Simone.

Kudos (and a Green Star) to you, Jennifer M. for your plans to raise a Vegan baby. She (or he) is a most fortunate soul.

DEFINITELY! I was pregnant AND raised my son veg. The doctors told me that my diet was best, and it IS, for all humans.
