FLDS children allegedly on diet of beans and water
Anti-polygamy activist K. Dee Ignatin of San Antonio urges people to join her cause as she attempts to draw attention to the needs of children inside the tight-knit FLDS community still loyal to imprisoned prophet Warren Jeffs.
Ignatin says that the children are being fed only beans and water two times each day. The restriction, she claims, was ordered by Jeffs.
“There is no milk, no cheese, no meat or fruit, no sugar, no vegetables, no grains-nothing but beans and water,” Ignatin says. “The parents are still allowed to eat other foods but the children get nothing but beans and water.”
Recent aerial photos of the YFZ Ranch reveal that all of the dairy cows once kept there are gone, lending credence to the belief that Jeffs’ self-sufficient followers, or at least those here in Schleicher County, no longer have access to dairy products.
