hi my name is angela i have pku too. there are different things that kids with pku can eat like for instance if you want to give him some candy give him anything thats not chocolate, doesnt contain phenylanalyne, and is not sugar free and you will be fine some of the free foods that it doesnt matter how much you give him and hell get sick before he even gets a hint of more brain damage is candy, frosting, any kind of pop as long as its not diet, and any kind of freeze pops that arent sugar free.i hope this helps so you know some of the things he can and cant eat and maybe theres a way we can get him back on track.
