The doctor's warning is good advice “It’s more difficult to get enough protein, enough B-12 and enough fat,” said NBC4 medical expert Dr. Bruce Hensel.“A child’s growing body needs fat to develop the nervous system in the brain. If they don’t get enough, there could be developmental problems"

Any parent should use good judgement and seek a medical professionals advice. Folks like hac wishing to force their ways on others isn't the answer.

In fact. the doctor may figured out hac's issue.

blah blah blah blah...you're STILL flailing and whining??? Get lost, you ignorant coward. You know NOTHING about being VEGAN. Ruby Roth's book VEGAN IS LOVE, ROCKS and MILLIONS of children are learning the TRUTH. Much to the chagrin of scum like YOU, children are learning to have COMPASSION, EMPATHY and RESPECT for animals. They are also learning that hunters are despicable psychopaths who get a sick rush from MAIMING, MUTILATING and MURDERING animals. Face it, gossip queen, you belong to an ever DECLINING clan of despicable OUTCASTS. But by all means keep flailing about and FAILING as you obsess and infest the ANIMAL RIGHTS forums. No wonder you cowards keep obsessing over the ANIMAL RIGHTS forums, because from what I recently saw, your pansyass 'hunting forums' are empty, just like your twisted minds. Be sure to whine some more, jimmy, I realize you are desperate!!

People who are well informed already know this:

"It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes. A vegetarian diet is defined as one that does not include meat (including fowl) or seafood, or products containing those foods. This article reviews the current data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including protein, n-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, and vitamins D and B-12. A vegetarian diet can meet current recommendations for all of these nutrients. In some cases, supplements or fortified foods can provide useful amounts of important nutrients. An evidence-based review showed that vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate in pregnancy and result in positive maternal and infant health outcomes. The results of an evidence-based review showed that a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease. Vegetarians also appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes than nonvegetarians. Furthermore, vegetarians tend to have a lower body mass index and lower overall cancer rates. Features of a vegetarian diet that may reduce risk of chronic disease include lower intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals. The variability of dietary practices among vegetarians makes individual assessment of dietary adequacy essential. In addition to assessing dietary adequacy, food and nutrition professionals can also play key roles in educating vegetarians about sources of specific nutrients, food purchase and preparation, and dietary modifications to meet their needs."

Keep flailing and FAILING, gossip queen---the fact that you continue to infest the ANIMAL RIGHTS forums only proves how desperate you are and how much you fear ANIMAL RIGHTS and VEGANS. You are such a flailing coward.

There is a lot of myths about a vegan diet and one of those is "A vegan diet lacks protein".

Protein is found in all food and as long as you eat a balanced vegan diet you wont have any problems getting enough protein.

When I was vegan I had no problems getting enough protein.

Only animal products contain all 8 essential amino acids in the correct amounts. You could get them from veggies but the copius amounts and varieties you would have to consume make it far too tedious and time consuming for most folks.

MORE information that proves VEGANS get PLENTY of necessary protein:

Getting Past the 'Protein Myth' That Keeps People from Quitting Meat and Dairy

By Kathy Freston, Huffington Post


"When I tell people that I'm a vegan, the most popular question, by far, inevitably follows: "But, how do you get enough protein?"

There it is again, I think, the meat industry's most potent weapon against vegetarianism -- the protein myth. And it is just that -- a myth.

In fact, humans need only 10 percent of the calories we consume to be from protein. Athletes and pregnant women need a little more, but if you're eating enough calories from a varied plant based diet, it's close to impossible to not to get enough.

The way Americans obsess about protein, you'd think protein deficiency was the number one health problem in America. Of course it's not -- it's not even on the list of the ailments that doctors are worried about in America or any other countries where basic caloric needs are being met.

What is on the list? Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity -- diseases of affluence. Diseases linked to eating animal products. According to the American Dietetic Association, which looked at all of the science on vegetarian diets and found not just that they're healthy, but that they "provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."

They continue: "Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence ... Vegetarians have been reported to have lower body mass indices than nonvegetarians, as well as lower rates of death from ischemic heart disease; vegetarians also show lower blood cholesterol levels; lower blood pressure; and lower rates of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and prostate and colon cancer."

Dr. Dean Ornish writes of his Eat More, Weigh Less vegetarian diet -- the one diet that has passed peer-review for taking weight off and keeping it off for more than 5 years -- that in addition to being the one scientifically proven weight loss plan that works long-term, it "may help to prevent a wide variety of other illnesses including breast cancer in women, prostate cancer in men, colon cancer, lung cancer, lymphoma, osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension, and so on ...."

So when people ask me about protein, I explain that protein is not a problem on a vegan diet, that the real problems that are plaguing us in the West can be addressed in part with a vegetarian diet, and that I get my protein the same way everyone else does -- I eat!

Beans, nuts, seeds, lentils, and whole grains are packed with protein. So are all vegetables as a caloric percentage, though they don't have enough calories to sustain most people as a principal source of sustenance. And these protein sources have some excellent benefits that animal protein does not -- they contain plenty of fiber and complex carbohydrates, where meat has none. That's right: Meat has no complex carbs at all, and no fiber. Plant proteins are packed with these essential nutrients.

Plus, since plant-based protein sources don't contain cholesterol or high amounts of saturated fat, they are much better for you than meat, eggs, and dairy products.

It is also worth noting the very strong link between animal protein and a few key diseases, including cancer and osteoporosis."
