Hi, My name’s Breanna. I’m 15 and I have PKU like your student and fortunetally perfectly healthy. I’m not a doctor, plus I’m not sure how off this child is but I would just say that you should try to help his parents monitor what he eats as well as you can. Try too treat him as much like any other kid as much as you can (Again I’m not positive how mentally damaged he is). I hope this helps some what but let me know if you need any other help. nBreanna
