A couple in New York was found guilty of assault yesterday in the case where they nearly starved their baby to death. Their daughter , IIce, was fed no dairy products or formula. Instead they fed her ground nuts and puréed fruits and vegetables. When authorities confiscated 15-months-old IIce she was toothless, had rickets, broken bones and internal injuries. She was severely malnourished and weighed 10 pounds. While this is clearly an extreme case, it goes to show the importance of a balanced diet, especially for children.
