The arguments are becoming heated as to whether vegan, carbohydrate free and other extreme alternative diets that work for adults should be fed to infants and growing children. In some cases, serious health problems like iron deficiencies, small size, death and fatigue were found to be related to children's diet. Where do people stand on this issue?

I researched and wrote a news article the other day and was shocked to hear that vegan diets are leading to so many health problems. Kids are not adults and they need fuller diets.
you can get vitamins and minerals such as the ones you named from other things then just meat and diary. In act, did you know that diary is not good for anyone?
Quite true wishhing, I have never understood why common practice is to force cow breastmilk on our children. The same things that come from that come from many other things, including human breastmilk which is safe no matter age.

That's the problem. Trying to replace meat and dairy with plant extracts is just too risky.
I feel like you are more afraid of the unknown of this, but if you do your studies meat and dairy are a poor sources other then protein. Do you know what they do to the cows? Do you REALLY know what is in cow milk?
That is the worst excuse for science I have ever heard. This kind of false and problematic information is why people's health is at risk.
