Vegan diet “not dangerous for children”, says Italian Administrative Court

The Italian Regional Administrative Court for Alto Adige/Sudtirol ruled that, on the basis of the available scientific information, a vegan diet is not dangerous for a child of less than six years.

The child had been expelled from a State-run kindergarten after his mother had asked the managing authorities to stick to a vegan regime in feeding him. The kindergarten management had refused citing possible health effects.

The woman challenged the decision in the local Administrative Court, presenting evidence that a vegan diet is perfectly suitable for a child without specific health conditions.
