I'm not giving my baby veggies ever! What's going to happen?

Really, what would happen if a person never ate vegetables?  Would they die?  Be malnourished?  Not grow properly? 

Don't worry I'm still giving my baby veggies but sometimes I get so sick of forcing her to eat them.  I've been tempted to not even buy them anymore (BUT I STILL AM)

Nothing would happen. They amy not be as healthy as a person who had a regular diet of veggies...but they would still be as healthy as that kid that is forced to eat a tablespoon of pees at dinner 4 times a week because his parents think thats what eating veggies means.

Huh. I have no idea! I bet they'd probably get malnurished if a person NEVER ate veggies. 

My son hates meat, he loves veggies but still spit out any sort of meat.  The other day he took a few bites of chicken at subway and we were shocked!  But he ate every veggie on his sub, and half of mine! lol

idk about anyone else, but my daughter and i are vegetarians, we'd die with no veggies...LOL. 

When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they're finished, I climb out.

I would guess that if you didn't provide vitamins she could be malnurished or more prone to getting sick. Vegetables can include things like sweet potatos and squashes which DS loves. Personally I think having a balanced diet starts early and feeding a variety of foods helps lay the foundation for healthy eating habits later in life.

They provide you with water, fiber, nutrients, vitamins, minerals....they can lower the risk of some cancers, improve memory function, promote healthy urinary tract, healthy aging, healthy vision & heart, healthy immune system and make your bones strong.

Although you could be provided with a good multivitiam.... your body doesn't break it down nearly as well as eating them.

That kid will be the one held back because he can't remember what his teacher taught him. He'll be the one that can't focus, the one getting sick all the time. The one with depression. I've heard of people having these problems because of malabsorption issues of certain vitamins. I would think that people who don't eat foods with these vitamins would have the same problems.
