I’m not an adult, but I will tell you this. If you want to exclude meat to help your PKU child then it maybe a good idea to start that now, although if you decide not to do that I can reassure you your PKU child will adjust. It’s like my mom alwasy says, she’s never eatten snail and doesn’t miss it, I’ve never had meat and even though my siblings do eat meat I’ve never missed it. In my opinion it maybe easier for you PKU child if you don’t exclude meat from you family because when they eventually start school others will be eatting that. That is just my opinion and if that is what you feel is the right thing to do, then do it because your the mother and only you know what is right for your child. nBreanna nHope that helped.
