How a vegan diet can wreck a child's health

How a vegan diet can wreck a child's health
- Fashionable vegan diets can be damaging to children's health, nutritionists warn.
Vegan diets, devoid of meat, fish or dairy, can lead to devastating health effects and, in the worst cases, death, reports the Daily Mail.
Children following vegan diets are leaner and smaller than children who eat meat or even those on vegetarian diets which allow milk, eggs and cheese.
But veganism is becoming increasingly popular in the UK.
The number of vegans has risen 360 per cent in the past decade to 542,000 people, now 1 per cent of the UK population, from just 150,000 in 2007.
It is not known how many child vegans there are, but based on the adult figures it could be as many as 110,000 under-16s.
