"Why Haven't Child Protective Services Taken The Child Yet?!" Fruitarian's Followers Worry About Her Child's Health

Date May 22, 2019 18:03

We are used to thinking that every parent is entitled to raising their child the way they want to. Of course, within reasonable limits. But where do we draw the line? When is the time for Child Protective Services to interfere, when somebody notices that the child is being mistreated?

24-year-old Ksenia Ryazanceva has several thousand followers on social media and some of them started to sound the alarms. She is a liquidarian. It's a type of diet where a person consumes only juices and smoothies of plant origin.

It's fine; Ksenia is an adult; it's up to her to decide on her own diet. But her followers are seriously concerned with the fact that she has been feeding her son, Sargeras, only fruit for over six months. And he is, just think about it, only 2-and-a-half years old.

Ksenia's followers are convinced that this type of diet is not suitable for a growing boy. The least the mother can do is wait till the kid is old enough to make his own decisions about what to eat.

Why haven't Child Protective Services taken the child yet?!

sairqqqqq:

What are Child Protective Services doing? Did she ask the kid if he wants to live his life without normal food? Can't she see she's killing the child? I will definitely do something about it

phantomhjhvh:

I feel sorry for the kid.

Ksenia herself claims that she regularly takes her son to the pediatrician and that his blood tests are fine:

We go for blood tests every once in a while, but I'm still a bit afraid of these Child Protective Services.

According to Ksenia, her husband is completely supportive of her choices and the way they are raising the boy.

Meanwhile, the Dietary Guidelines for Children established by scientists haven't changed for many years. It's impossible to ensure a child's healthy development without the proper amount of protein, dairy products, fruit, vegetables, and cereals. Thus, Ksenia robs Sargeras off at least four components crucial to his development.

Let's hope that Ksenia will soon be able to hear what her followers are warning her about. Sargeras may, of course, become a fruitarian in the future, but in order to do that, he needs to grow up first and make his own decisions, right?
