Toddler starved by her vegan parents so badly she had no teeth and couldn't stand up is now obese - with her carer saying 'it's like she's storing calories in case she needs them in the future'
The malnourished child, who was fed a diet relying on oats and rice milk, was 'defenceless and unable to protect herself' from her mother and father for the first 19 months of her life.
Details of the Australian toddler's neglect were revealed in Sydney's Downing Centre District Court on Thursday during a sentencing hearing for her parents.
The court has heard the child, now aged three, had no medical records after her birth and neighbours did not even know she existed.
Her mother and father, aged 32 and 35, fed the girl a diet so lacking in basic nutrients she developed rickets, a degenerative bone disease caused by a shortage of vital nutrients.
They have admitted to failing to provide for their child, causing her serious injury.
Her metabolism is now so fucked up she turning into a morbidly obese blob. Damn vegans.
