This isn't a case where veganism is the cause, it's a case of poorly educated people feeding a child inadequately. It's getting headlines because the paper can put "vegan" in the headline. Parents who fed their children inadequately, but happened to just be omivorous and stupid, would have the story buried deep in the local news setion, page 13, below the fold.

Most vegan experts on child nutrition recommend breastfeeding a child, or, barring that, feeding a child a vegan formula made especially for infants. Children can grow perfectly healthfully on vegan and vegetarian diets.

The ridiculous thing is that people will now say "How awful for these people to force their beliefs on their children!" when every parent in the world does just that and no one will bother to educate themselves on the effect of what diet can really do to a child.
