Nudist websites with photos of nude children are legal in the US because nudity is not inherently sexual and photos of nudity are not automatically pornography. Those children are nudists because their parents have raised them in the clothes-free nudist lifestyle, and they are not embarrassed, ashamed, or afraid to be seen nude or see others nude. It's most likely their parents who took the photos, or at least gave permission to the photographer. They're entitled to take and share their family and vacation photos and there's no reason they shouldn't just because they're nude. Nude photos of children that do not contain any sort of sexual activity and show nothing more than nudity are not pornography, not obscene, and not lewd, facts upheld by a ruling from the Supreme Court many years ago that confirmed the legality and innocence of such pictures in a case where a newsstand operator was being charged with child pornography for importing naturist magazines from Europe which showed nude children along with their parents and other adults. The case was thrown out when it was declared such material to not be pornography and therefore not child porn.
