Undetected and untreated vitamin B12 deficiency [and folic acid] in infants can result in severe and permanent neurological damage
Should it be no surprise then that he promotes veganism while using the largest ad corporation’s blogging service to decry the “evils” of capitalism?
Life Inc, on that very topic, weak premise: proximity. He makes the claim that society and nuclear families are to blame for the world’s ills in this case a “shrill condemnation of how corporate culture has disconnected human beings from each other”. If anything the apathy- and indifference afforded by high population density of large cities is much to blame WITH cooperation of increasing wrong-tolerance. Capitalism is morally agnostic: holding it to blame is irrational at best. (for the simple: this is not the same as ‘capitalism’ is evil’. One must bring one’s moral code to capitalism in much the same way as one does to public life, or public service.)
since the vitamins developing children REQUIRE cannot be sourced from your flawed ideology’s food source restrictions  they must take supplements. It follows logically these supplements originate from sources antithetical to veganism.
Vegans eat only food of plant origin. Because animal products are the only food sources of vitamin B12, vegans must supplement their diets with a source of this vitamin. In addition, vegan diets, particularly those of children, require care to ensure adequacy of vitamin D and calcium

However all vegans are ideologically hypocritical: plants “deserve” to live in exactly the same way animals “deserve” to live. Vegans must WAIT for their (potential) food to die before eating it. Buying it dead is not sufficient as they would be participating in the wholesale slaughter of vegetables.
